This week a parent writes...
We asked the school for a meeting to review the IEP in January. The teacher said she does not have to have an IEP meeting to revise the IEP until the annual review meeting in May.
This is incorrect.
You can request a meeting to review or revise the IEP at any time.
The law says an IEP must be reviewed annually and schools generally schedule annual reviews in the spring, toward the end of the school year. New IEPs are developed to go into effect for the next school year.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn about reviewing and revising your child's IEP, who can request a review and when, and what IDEA requires.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to friends, family members, or colleagues.
