In This Issue ...
February 28, 2012
Do you have questions about IEPs? You will "stress less" during this IEP season if you learn, or review, what the law really says. (Hint: This may be different from what you have been told!)
- Do you understand what your role is at IEP meetings?
- Do you know the required members of your child's IEP team?
- Do you know who may be excused from IEP meetings, when, how?
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, you will learn about IEP team members and IEP team attendance, when team members may be excused from a meeting, and what parents and the school district must do before a team member may be excused.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to friends, family members, or colleagues.

Parents are NOT Members of the IEP Team...Say What!?
I understand that parents are no longer required participants on their child's IEP team. Are teachers excluded from IEP meetings?
Does it make sense that a child's IEP team would not include the child's parents and teachers? If you answer, NO, you're right!

If you have questions about IEPs, our multi-media training program Legal Requirements of IEPs shows you exactly what the law requires.
During the program, Pete will refer to the Analysis of Comments and Changes ("Commentary") and the Model IEP Form. These documents are on the CD-ROM.
