An Individual Education Program (IEP) is a written statement for a child with a disability that is develolped, 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

    • Occupational Therapist
    • Physical Therapist
    • Speech Pathologist
    • School Counselor
    • School Social Worker
    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.
