Cheryl: I am a retired SDC teacher, acting now as an (unpaid) advocate for SPED kids and their parents in a small, rural school district in CA. A have a few students whose IEPs have been so protracted and drawn-out (the district never allows more than an hour for an IEP; then they act as if they’ve given you a gift if it goes longer!), that finalizing an IEP can take months. By the time the IEP is finished, the next IEP is literally only 6-8 months away; teachers are tired of meeting for the same kid – which makes them much less invested – and the parent is in trouble with work for having to take time off during the work day! Is there something – a law, a ruling – that calls this for what it is (stalling, wasting the Team’s time, wearing down the parents, etc.)?
