Penny: Is it the law, federally or in any state, that requires multiple goals be written? My ISD is requiring all IEP’s include at least 2 goals, regardless of disability. So for example, a student qualifies with a Learning Disability in reading comprehension. My ISD is requiring me to write 2 goals (each with 2 short term objectives). They are interpreting the law as “goals”, nor “goal(s)”. Please help me clarify. I live in the state of Michigan.
