The Maine Department of Education has notified vendors that there will be significant changes to Maine's Special Education forms for the 2017-18 school year. Changes are expected to include:
Once completed and vetted by DOE, changes will be submitted to vendors for review and planning. Per usual practice, a conference call will be set up to discuss changes, use and implementation of forms once vetted. DOE anticipates changes to be completed and available for review by 5/30/2017.
Per usual practice, SameGoal will review these new forms and attend the DOE conference call. SameGoal expects to release the new forms in the software by Tuesday, August 1st such that districts have ample time to gain familiarity and train staff for the 2017-18 school year.
