An IEP meeting has been scheduled for Thursday evening. We need all IEP team members present during this meeting. The members include: Cody, Ms. Davis, Cody's regular education teachers, myself (Principal Smith), a Transition Services Agency representative, the Special Education teacher, a person who can interpret the evaluation results, and another person who has different knowledge set about Cody. Thanks.
Cody comes to the meeting just to learn a little about the process or to share information about himself.
Ms. Davis can describe what goals are most important to her and Cody, and give insights into Cody's interests, likes and dislikes, and learning styles. By being an active IEP team member, Cody's doctor can give thought about long-term needs for Cody's successful adult life.
Mr. Smith attends the meeting to be the ears of the group. He knows what resources the school has available and can step in to ensure that whatever Cody may need, the school will receive. He will be able to ensure that whatever services are described in the IEP will actually be provided.
IEP Meeting in Progress
The Transition Services representative will look at what other services, accommodations, adaptations, or supports Cody will need to learn.
The evaluation interpreter can talk about the instructional implications of the Cody’s evaluation results, which will help the team plan appropriate instruction to address the Cody’s needs.
The Special Education teacher provides Cody's general ed. teachers information and experience about how to educate Cody. This includes how to modify their curriculum and provide appropriate accommodations. Cody's regular ed. teachers will talk about what Cody is expected to learn in the regular ed. environment. This will contribute directly to making decisions about what types of supplementary aids and services Cody may need to be successful in the classroom, and will help shape his overall IEP goals.
