A Student Summary Sheet condenses pertinent information about the student into a one-page document that can easily be scanned and sent on to the next environment in an email, or as a hard copy. It highlights the student’s strengths and skills, areas where the student may need extra assistance, and strategies that can increase his/her success, among other considerations.
I’m a primary school special educator in a large school district where students transition to several different upper elementary schools when they leave second grade. Due to the size of our district, it’s nearly impossible to meet with all of the receiving teachers for my students at the end of the school year. I’d like these teachers to know more about my kids before they start in the fall. I know they’ll get the IEPs, but I wondered if you had any suggestions on how I can help the new teachers learn about my students?
