Individualized Education Program (IEP)

Some students with disabilities ages 3-21 may require special education and related services to meet their unique needs and to support them in attaining both their short and long term educational goals.  These services are governed by federal legislation via the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004).

To receive these services, a student must first be evaluated by a Pupil Appraisal Team to determine his/her eligibility.  An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed for an eligible student by their IEP Team. The IEP team is comprised of educators, the student’s parents, and other key individuals as needed. The IEP defines the special education and related services a student will receive, as well the goals that he/she will work towards, and the environment(s) in which the services will be delivered.
