The I.E.P.

The IEP (individualized education program) is the written plan that describes how the student will participate in the general education curriculum (if appropriate) and identifies the special education and related services that the school will provide to the student.  An IEP must include the following:

  • Measurable goal(s) that the CCC expects the student to achieve over the next 12 months
  • Information on how the student’s progress toward achieving the IEP goals will be measured
  • Information on the student’s progress will be reported to the parent(s)
  • A description of the special education services and supports that will be provided to the student or to staff working with the student
  • The projected date the services will begin and end, and the length, frequency and location of the services
  • Information about how the student will participate in local and statewide assessments
  • The student’s participation with non-disabled students
  • The student’s need for extended school year (ESY) services
  • The student’s placement in the least restrictive environment (LRE)
  • Written notes to document the CCC meeting
  • Information on transfer of rights when the student turns 18
