Special Education Recovery Services

  • Recent legislation in Minnesota requires IEP/IFSP teams to invite parents/guardians to an IEP/IFSP meeting by 12/1/21 to determine whether special education recovery services are required.  The purpose of special education recovery services is to address lack of progress on IEP/IFSP goals, lack of progress in the general education curriculum related to IEP goal areas, and loss of learning due to disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    The IEP/IFSP team including the child’s parent/guardian will determine if a child qualifies for special education recovery services.

    Special education recovery services can include academic supports, mental health supports, behavioral supports, related services, and other supports identified on the IEP/IFSP.

    Parents/guardians will be contacted by the IEP/IFSP manager to schedule an IEP/IFSP team meeting to discuss special education recovery services by 12/1/21.  Questions?  Please see the Q & A document below or contact your student’s IEP/IFSP manager.  PACER Center has also developed a resource "Understanding Minnesota Special Education Recovery Services and Supports" which is linked below.  PACER Center has created an additional resource "Preparing for the IEP Team Meeting to Discuss Special Education Recovery Services and Supports for Your Child."  See link below.
