A 3 year (triennial) evaluation and an IEP meeting have different purposes. The purpose of a triennial eval is to determine if the child continues to be eligible for special ed. The purpose of an IEP meeting is to develop the child’s IEP.

Attendance at an IEP meeting is not necessary if the parent and the school district agree that a member’s attendance is not necessary because the member’s area of the curriculum or related service will not be discussed or modified. (for other exceptions, please see page 135 in Wrightslaw: All About IEPs)
