Important information related to COVID-19 response

Pursuant to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ emergency order, “Pause to Save Lives”, effective 11/18/2020 – 12/9/2020, SEMS mediations and facilitations are restricted to online service provision.

SEMS can host virtual meetings for parents and schools, or our facilitators will join an already scheduled virtual meeting.  Documents will be distributed via DocuSign for signature.

Our no-cost services remain available to assist families and school staff while planning for the education of students with disabilities.   In addition to mediation to resolve identified disputes as part of procedural safeguards, SEMS also provides neutral facilitators for all special education meetings. 

Please direct any questions regarding this policy to 517-334-0034.
