Click Programs Tab, then ADD IEP. Choose the appropriate IEP. Click Create New Meeting. If there are other meetings scheduled, it may offer one of those as a choice. Choose as appropriate. FYI- You can easily add team members at the meeting so please do not
until after the meeting. Please give parent 2-3 chances to make a meeting (multiple & varied attempts*). Some have a difficult time arranging transportation. Phone conferences are a
alternative. Schedule your meeting at least 1 week prior to the IEP due date (things happen). In the Notice of Meeting be sure you indicate the topics that will be addressed.
*Messages left on answering machines do NOT count as an attempt!
Complete Dates Section. Complete Consideration Section: If behavior is an issue and check these choices, a FBA* and/or BIP will need to be completed.
*A school psychologist MUST complete the FBA process. The IEP Team, with input from the school psychologist, can complete the BIP.
Complete PLAFF: Please be thorough. Use objective documentation/ information. Current grades can go here. Complete Findings Section: Should have multiple types of objective date for students (current grades, MAP, PASS, CBM, Progress Monitoring, etc.). Goals can only be written for areas that are identified here. Complete GOALS section: If you utilize “Indirect” time, you must maintain documentation of your Indirect Services (see form entitled,
Documentation of Indirect Services).
Complete Accommodations/Modifications section: List all needed accommodations/modifications. Fill out Specific Instructions to clarify (i.e.- an example: reduced assignments statement here with clarification and specific details). Don’t use testing lingo here (300% should be explained as extended time or time and a half). Please make sure you use Accommodations/Modifications that are based on student’s NEED and linked to PLAAFP and user friendly for the upcoming grade level (meetings about this are Great!). Complete Services section: This section may change soon to Direct/Indirect Services. Complete Assessment Participation: Please fill in ALL accommodations for District Tests (should be using them on a regular basis for instruction). Complete LRE section: Complete all sections and please be thorough with explanations about removal and placement. Make sure minutes add up correctly (SLP, OT, etc.). Complete ESY Section. Complete PWN: Be very specific. This should contain everything discussed and all decisions made/not made. Notes should NOT be as detailed. Put it ALL here. Validate and correct if needed. Finalize. Parents should leave the meeting with a copy of the finalized IEP.
