Service hours for 3-5 year olds
I am a special education teacher currently teaching in the public schools in Indiana. I teach early childhood 3-5 self contained intense intervention class. We have every eligibility.
My question is the district went to full day for all children in my class. Even 3 year olds. This means they get off the bus at 8:30 and go home at 3:30 five days a week. Does anyone else have this kind of service hours for these little ones?
I know when the issues are as serious as my kiddos have they need LOTS, but it causes a time constraint for planning due to the high needs of the kids and their presence for 7 hours a day.
