Roberta: A teacher recently told me that I didn’t need to come to my son’s IEP meeting since we were going to meet again in a few weeks to review his MET results. His IEP is expiring and we need to have an annual before the expiration date. They were going to write one for 6 months, then have another one in the future. He was concerned I would need to take the day off work to attend meeting. Are parents required to be in attendance at IEP meetings? I thought they were. Is this legal?

You are a member of the IEP team and should attend any IEP meeting in which educational decisions are being considered. Ask if the IEP team can meat at an alternate time that you are available. Give several options for times that you are available. Be sure to ask for and keep IEP minutes in chronological order. you might want to take a thumb drive just in case the school is having issues with their printer. They will be glad to save the IEP minutes to your thumb drive.
