Student Support Services

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Hello and welcome back to the 2022-2023 school year!

The top priority of the Special Education Department here at Frazier School District is to ensure all students are provided with an educational experience that is engaging, supportive, and meaningful for each and every student. As the Director of Special Education I will continue to strive to be your child’s strongest advocate and do everything I can to support their individual needs.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to inform you we will continue to conduct all meetings such as IEP, GIEP, or 504 Plans in-person, with the option to participate virtually or by phone conference when necessary. You will be contacted by the Special Education Secretary to schedule the meeting and once a time is confirmed, invitations and any other necessary documents or links will be mailed/emailed.

In order to better accommodate parents who would like to attend virtually and to ensure we maintain compliance with special education paperwork, we will be implementing e-signatures utilizing the IEPWriter program which will directly notify you by email to electronically sign off on any paperwork. This will also provide you with a copy of the document(s) as well as procedural safeguards. Please be patient with us introducing this new feature and during IEP meetings the case manager will provide you with a brief explanation on this new process.

If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to participate in meetings, please contact the Special Education Office at 724-736-9507 Ext. 128.

Thank you,

Mr. Eric Johnson

Special Education Director
