IEPs eligible for review include students who will be turning 15 years or older in the 2014-15 school year.

Looking for evidence

Looking for evidence:

  • Each table has 3 IEP’s – green, yellow, and blue

  • Working with a partner, choose one IEP and determine compliance in each of the 7 citations using the yellow Individual Record Review Sheet (sections are highlighted and labeled - IIIbis not included in this activity)

  • Refer to the powerpoint to identify each compliance element

  • As a table, label each IEP as

    • Meets compliance (100%)

    • Working towards (so close)

    • Poor (not quite there yet)
