Responsibilities of Teachers

As an educator you have some responsibilities to every student including those who are in or at risk for special education. Some of these responsibilities include:

referral of a student who may need special ed
monitoring a student to see whether any changes have helped bring the student up to speed
to determine what interventions could help the child and monitor how they respond to RTI
key member of a student’s IEP team to develop a game plan
to know of each student’s IEP in your class
THE MOST IMPORTANT RESPONSIBILITY OF A TEACHER:

TO MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR STUDENTS.

If you are unsure where to look for more information about what is expected of you as a teacher here is an example of a school districts website that maps out what is expected:

If you want more information about IDEA go to their website at

If you want to read up on Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act visit their website at

And make sure that as a teacher you are focusing on your students so that no one falls though the cracks. It is very easy for a student to get lost and never catch back up if no one is there to help them. Education is for everyone and everyone should have the best education they can get.
