Individual Education Program (IEP)

An Individual Education Program (IEP) is a formal document outlining the special services for a student by the Committee on Special Education. The IEP contains the summary of the student’s strengths and weaknesses, present levels of performance, and specific educational goals. It also indicates the nature of the disabling condition and the recommended programs and placement. The IEP is the teacher’s guide for instruction and is reviewed at least annually by the Committee on Special Education. Additionally, the CSE conducts a comprehensive re-evaluation at least every three years.
