What We Do

  • The Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a written plan developed for each student eligible under IDEA that describes how the school district will educate the student.  The parent(s) and a team of educators develop the IEP based on the available information about the student.  IDEA requires that school districts include comprehensive information about the student on the IEP, including:

    • Academic goals
    • Services the student will receive
    • Prescribed management of the student’s behaviors (if needed)
    • Accommodations to be provided in the general education and special education classrooms
    • Accommodations to be provided on statewide assessments
    • Type of statewide assessment in which the student will participate
    • Prescribed assistive technology (if needed)
    • Transition services and post-secondary outcomes

    The IEP is the tool used to determine what services a student receives and what a free, appropriate, public education (FAPE) means for that student.
