IEP – what to know before you go

An IEP team must include the parents of the student, a regular education teacher, a special education teacher, a representative of the school district who is knowledgeable about the available resources, who can interpret assessment results, and in general is well-versed in the IEP process. Knowing as much as you can about what an IEP includes and what its purpose is will make you a more powerful parent-advocate.

What is an IEE? And why is it so important?

An IEE is an Independent Educational Evaluation, performed by a qualified professional who does not work for the public school or school district. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides that parents of special education students have a right to an IEE when they disagree with the public school’s evaluation of their child.
