IEP Meeting: WHAT TO DO IF PARENTS DO NOT COME?

Lisa: In my district when a parent does not come to an IEP meeting, it is common practice to have all members sign as participants and then “document” this attempt as IEP part 1. When asked about this process I was told “well it stops the 60 day timeline”.

I find this to be quite illegal….should the IEP team simply reschedule, notify the family of new dates/times offered, and note in the file that the parents did not come to the first meeting scheduled?

It is best to try a second time and to schedule the first meeting so that the timeline does not expire. It also works to ask if a phone meeting with all PPT members present is a possibility. I have see that to be very successful and it engages the parents who cannot leave their places of work.
