1 Special Education Liaison Meeting January 23 & 26, 2009 ANNUAL REVIEW COMPLIANCE & PAGE BY PAGE OVERVIEW OF THE IEP
2 Annual Review Compliance Status report: 19% are out of compliance in the Bronx (5145) Use of R326 and for a quicker turn-around the Projected Register Report The issue of open triennials preventing data entry of annual reviews Process: Close triennial, enter annual review, re-open triennial Personnel: IEP team clerical or if theres a vacancy, bring it to ISC. Effect of out of compliance annual reviews on the process of waiving the triennial: Since waiver of the triennial is dependent on alternate sources of data being available, the lack of a current annual review affects the ability to waive the triennial.

ALL providers must receive a copy of the IEP (special education teachers, general education teachers & related service providers). Teachers must review IEPs with paraprofessionals since paraprofessionals should only have access and do not receive a copy of the IEP. The principal must let staff know the designee responsible for reviewing with them their responsibilities in implementing IEPs. Chapter 408! Its the law!
