The Navigating Compensatory Education/Recovery Services during the COVID-19 Pandemic parent’s guide helps parents understand how compensatory education/recovery services will be determined for their child to address any loss of a free appropriate public education (FAPE) that may have occurred during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The guide describes how decisions will be made, how parents can effectively participate in the process, and what parents can do if they disagree with the school’s decision.
