MASSACHUSETTS AFTER HIGH SCHOOL SURVEY
Dear Arlington Public Schools Alumnus,
If you received special education services and graduated or aged-out of the Arlington Public Schools during the 2015-2016 school year we need your help!
Now that you have been out in the world for a while, we want to hear how you are doing so that we can make high school a better place for future high school students.
Teachers will use your answers to learn what they can do to help other youths get jobs and go to school after high school. Your answers will be kept private. No one will share your name or answers with anyone else.
Answering the 9 survey questions will take you about 5 minutes.
If you would rather talk to someone on the phone instead of answering on-line, please call Mary Marrocco at (781) 316 – 3533 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
If you would rather talk to someone in person, please come visit us in the Special Education Office at 869 Massachusetts Avenue on the 6th floor of the high school between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Ask to speak with Mary Marrocco.
We want to hear from you. What you have to say is really important. Please help us by answering this survey! Thank you for your time.
Questions? Please contact Mary Marrocco at (781) 316 - 3533 or Alison Elmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is the responsibility of the Arlington Public Schools to identify any child who is a resident of Arlington, who may have a disability, regardless of the severity of the disability. It is also the responsibility of Arlington Public Schools to evaluate those students to determine if they are eligible for special education or related services under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) or 603 CMR 28 (Massachusetts Special Education Regulations).
Please see the below document for additional information.
PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
The Arlington Public Schools provides a comprehensive array of programs and services from pre-school through grades 12 designed to address the needs of identified students who have a disability and require specialized instruction. All students who are serviced with an Individual Education Program (IEP) are assigned a Special Education Liaison. This liaison serves as a case manager and contact person for staff and parents involved in the support and implementation of the student’s IEP. The liaison also collaborates with the general education teachers to ensure accommodations and modifications are implemented as outlined on the student’s IEP, as well as possibly provide direct instruction as specified on the IEP.
