What is a Case Manager?
“Administrative Case Management” means the following activities that are not direct instruction but that are necessary to facilitate a student’s special education:
1. Scheduling IEP meetings;
2. Coordinating evaluations, and IEP drafting;
3. Visiting potential student placement environments;
4. Communicating with a parent; and
5. Updating progress reports for meeting IEP goals (NH Rules pg 2).
Does the case manager teach my student as well?
The role of a case manager can vary depending on the district. In the Pelham School District, case managers are also considered to be "Special Education Teachers". All case managers hired in the Pelham School District are trained and responsible for Unsatisfactory performance on group achievement or accountability measures case management and teacher. However, due to scheduling purposes, a case manager assigned to a student may not always be the one servicing that student. In the interest of the student, the administration and the case managers attempt to assign students with special education teacher who fit together. For example student A has difficulty in math but his or her case manager has a specialty in reading. Another case manager may have a strength in math and would be a better fit for student A.
