Individualized Education Program
An Individual Education Program (IEP) is a written statement for a child with a disability that is developed, reviewed, and revised in a meeting in accordance with §§300.341-300.350.
An IEP is a written special education plan developed to meet the individual needs of the student. The following people must be in attendance:

  • parent(s)
  • special education teacher
  • regular education teacher
  • Local Education Agency representative (LEA)
  • School Counselor
  • Principal
  • Supervisor of Special Education
  • Director of Special Education
  • Other staff members who work with the student or may be involved in the student's programming may also attend the meeting.
There are several parts of the IEP:

  • Front cover page - demographic information and signatures
  • Present Levels - including strengths and needs
  • Transition pages
  • Goals and objectives
  • Specially Designed Instruction
  • Related Services
  • Extended School Year
  • Accommodations for state and district testing
  • Extent to which the student is not included in regular education
  • Amount and type of service
The team must meet at least once a year to revisit the student's IEP and make any appropriate changes to ensure the student is making meaningful progress.
All staff members working with the student have a right to read the current IEP and are expected to implement the student's program as listed in the document.
