Teacher Issues: WRITING IEPS FOR KIDS I DON’T TEACH

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Kathleen:  My school has not hired a permanent second grade Special Education teacher for the 2015-16. The eight special education students in second grade have a long term substitute teacher (who is not certified as a teacher).

I have been asked to write the IEP for one of the student’s who’s IEP is currently up for review. I don’t provided any instructions to either of the students so all their data comes from the regular education teacher and long term substitute special education teacher.

As a certified teacher, I don’t feel comfortable signing off on an IEP in which I provided no academic instruction for a student.

What are my rights?

I’m having trouble understanding your question. Could you proofread it, clarify your role and the cast of characters? Thank you.
