needed. Provide the parents with a copy of the final plan. Be sure to secure signatures on the plan before closing the meeting. Your copy of the plan is then stored in the SNAP Notebook. If appropriate, invite the student to participate in this meeting as well, to add his or her own suggestions for personal responsibility. 5. Hold 2nd Parent Conference If the steps outlined in the Individual Action Plan do not improve the situation by the time identified on the plan or if the parents do not comply with the plan, call a second conference with the parent(s) and include the Administrator. If appropriate, include other staff members involved with the student (e.g., after-school instructor, tutor, etc.). At this conference, be prepared with your recommendations for outside testing, evaluation, or counseling, or for a visit by a professional to the school setting. Give a time-frame to the parents for results to be given to the school if outside evaluation or testing is done. Provide the parents with a copy of the school's Policy on Student Progress. The Administrator should answer any questions the parents may have about the policy and procedures from this point forward. A brief summary of this conference and any recommendations that resulted should be written and included in the SNAP Notebook along with the expected timeline. A copy of the summary must be given to the parents, as stated in the Policy on Student Progress. There is no template for this written summary, as summaries will vary considerably depending on the circumstances. 6. Monitor Progress Facilitate recommendations as appropriate, and keep in touch with the family and consultants regularly to assure that sufficient progress is underway. At resolution, or at the end of the school year. whichever is first, complete the Year-End Summary form (see #8, below). If resolution is reached, remove all contents of the SNAP Notebook and file them in the student's office file. 7. Provide Education Agreement (Behavioral Developmental) If resolution is not reached with the steps above, it may be necessary to write a confidential Education Agreement to address the need for ongoing support from resources outside of the school. Provisions will be required of the parents (testing, therapy, tutoring, etc.) at this stage. These provisions will be carefully identified and signatures will be received to acknowledge agreement. While the conditions required may not be legally enforceable, in the majority of cases the process of signing this agreement serves as a sufficient notice of the parents' responsibility. This step also makes a strong statement of the school's inability to fully meet the student's needs without outside intervention. This document will be extremely important should the school get to the point where the student must be dismissed, denied reenrollment, or recommended for an extra year. This Education Agreement should be completed in advance by the teaching team, reviewed by the 115
