POLICY:

Itinerant teachers that are working with children on an Individualized Education Program (IEP), can work with children outside of the classroom without a Head Start representative present. 

PROCEDURES:

  1. Head Start staff will verify with Itinerant teacher(s) that the IEP states that the child will receive services outside of the classroom. 
  2. Head Start staff will verify with Itinerant teacher(s) that the IEP has been properly signed by the parent/guardian. 
  3. Head Start staff will verify with Itinerant teacher(s) when services will be provided for the individual child. 
  4. When the Itinerant teacher comes to provide services for the child, the Itinerant teacher will sign the child out of the classroom on the child’s individual sign-in/out sheet. This represents that the child is no longer in the care of NOCAC Head Start, and under the care of the School District representative reflected on the child’s IEP. 
  5. When the Itinerant teacher returns the child back to the classroom, the Itinerant teacher will sign the child back into the classroom on the child’s individual sign-in/out sheet. This represents that the child is no longer in the care of the School District representative reflected on the child’s IEP and back into the care of NOCAC Head Start. 
  6. Sign-in/out sheets will be turned in for the individual child with the monthly attendance. 
  7. Individual sign-in/out sheets will be filed in the child’s disability folder at the central office.
