If required, an administrative meeting will convene and other  placement may take place. 

o There are 4 Tiers that will inform you on how often you must be in a physical classroom. Some  individual circumstances may allow/require fluid movement from one plan to another plan at the  discretion of principals, special education teams, school counselors, or the Digital Academy Coordinator.

Monday – Middle School (Grades 6-8)
