• Individualized Education Program 

    An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is designed for each student with disabilities by a team including: 

    • Parents or guardians
    • At least one of the student's general education teachers
    • The special education teacher and/or the special education related service provider as appropriate.
    • A representative of the school district
    • Whenever appropriate, the student with a disability
    • At the discretion of the parents or the school district, other individuals who have knowledge or special expertise regarding the student, including related service personnel, as appropriate

     The IEP includes a statement:

    • of the student's present levels of educational performance
    • of measurable annual goals, including benchmarks or short-term objectives
    • of special education and related services and supplementary aids and services and a statement of program modifications or supports for school personnel to be provided for the student.
    • of the extent (if any) to which the student will participate with nondisabled students in the general education class and IEP activities.
    • of any individual modifications in administration of state and district-wide assessments of student achievement needed for the student to participate in the assessments.
    • of the projected date for the beginning of services and modifications and anticipated frequency, location, and duration of services and modifications.
    • of how progress toward annual goals will be measured.
    • of transition services.
    • that the student has been informed of his/her rights that will be transferred to the student upon reaching the age of majority.
    The IEP must be revised when appropriate and reviewed annually.
