a letter from rcsd Special Education Office regarding Electronic Communications


Dear Parents and/or Guardians,


The RCSD Pupil Personnel/Special Education Office is transitioning to electronic documents. We began to roll out the process last month, but, beginning next week, all notices, correspondence, and documents from our office will be coming to your email, not through the (postal) mail.  

You will receive an email from Frontline Education (notifications@mail3.frontlineed.com) shortly.  Please be sure to look for these emails and check that they are not going into your SPAM or Junk folders.  The message will indicate that someone has shared a collaboration document with you.  That someone will be one of the senior office assistants or administrators from the Pupil Personnel/Special Education Office.  The message will also include the following: 

A document is available for your review/signature. The access code for this document is the first three letters of the student's last name (upper case) plus his/her date of birth in mmddyyyy format. Example: XYZ04032005. Note: if student has fewer than three letters in his/her last name, the full last name is included with date of birth. **Child’s First Name and brief description of what was shared

Please click on the OPEN button to access the document. When receiving consents, you can now electronically sign them.  You do not have to sign for IEPs, 504 plans, Board of Education notices and/or meeting invitations.  If you do not access the document within 24 hours, you will need to request for it to be resent to you.

If you do not want to receive notifications, consents, and documents electronically please reach out to one of the following:

What is Disability Inclusion?
(according to the CDC)


Including people with disabilities in everyday activities and encouraging them to have roles similar to their peers who do not have a disability is disability inclusion. This involves more than simply encouraging people; it requires making sure that adequate policies and practices are in effect in a community or organization.

Inclusion should lead to increased participation in socially expected life roles and activities—such as being a student, worker, friend, community member, patient, spouse, partner, or parent.

Socially expected activities may also include engaging in social activities, using public resources such as transportation and libraries, moving about within communities, receiving adequate health care, having relationships, and enjoying other day-to-day activities.

WHAT IS an auditory processing delay?

Auditory processing disorder (APD) is a disorder that affects how a person's brain understands speech. A child may not have any hearing problems. But their ears and brain may not coordinate with each other, causing learning differences.
