Alysia: Can a school write social pragmatic goals regarding attendance at after school activities? For example, if the goal is for the child to increase peer connections/interpersonal communication and handle group work more easily, can the benchmark be “George will voluntarily attend one after school club a week”?
I guess the broader question is, can objectives and benchmarks be written that require the child to do something outside of the actual school day hours?

My understanding is that anything that the team believes that the student needs can be written in the IEP. We had social skill goals for my son. If it is a need and objective it can be writing.

Yes, this could be done. But the school is not likely to agree that they can. The IEP team is to address a student’s academic, social, & behavioral needs. The goal you suggest is easily measurable.
