(Reclaims, Crossroads, PALs, MOVES, Oaktree & Futures): Instruction for students with disabilities will focus on preventing regression in their IEP goals. BOCES will contact families directly. To every extent possible, they will implement as much of the IEP (services, related services, accommodations) as they can without being face-to-face with students. For those students with disabilities who are working toward a regular diploma, instruction will also focus on the core content and those classes needed for credit.
