Students Receiving Special Education Services Progress Report Dates

Progress reports for students receiving special education services will be sent home eight times during the 2015-2016 school year. These progress reports directly address the goals of your child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), and are different from the regular report card you also receive.

The dates you are to receive those reports are posted on the Columbus City Schools e-calendar that is on the District's website and all school websites.

If you do not receive a specific IEP Progress Report for your student, please contact the principal who will be happy to provide you with a copy.
