How an IEP works? Your IEP is based solely on your progress. You make progress, we lessen the SPED minutes/reduce your IEP. You stop making progress or you get worse, we increase your SPED minutes and increase your IEP. You meet your goals, you stop having an IEP!
Case Manager One teacher that is charge of “your case” Writes IEP/evaluation Advocate for student Monitor progress Mentoring of student
Your disability All students with an IEP have a SCHOOL RECOGNIZED disability that IMPACTS their education. Many students have a disability at school that do not have an IEP. School disability is different than a medical disability
Settings Right now you are in a setting I or setting II. If you make progress on your goals, you will move down a setting. Have less special education classes Not have an IEP. If you fail to make progress, you may increase your setting. Add more special education classes. Move to setting III; Bacha/Gerdings, self-contained Move to setting IV: Off site school like Capital View Move to setting V; Residential setting
Accommodations These are ways to help assist a student with a disability in the mainstream classes so that their disability doesn’t interfere with their success. The case manage is in charge of deciding if an accommodation is appropriate. You are allowed to ask for an accommodation if NEEDED.
I.E.P Goals These are the goals on your IEP. You need to meet the goal to make adequate progress for the year. It is very important that you evaluate your goal and make progress. Our goal is to write your goals in your binder and have you evaluate your progress.. Should do this every Friday (every day students) or every other Friday (every other day students).
