An individualized education program (IEP) is a written statement designed to meet a student’s unique needs and must be in effect:
- at the beginning of each school year;
- before special education and related services are provided for a student; and
- as soon as possible after a parent consents to the IEP.
The IEP is a very important document for students with disabilities and for those who are involved in educating them. The IEP should provide information specific to the student and improve teaching, learning and results. Each student's IEP describes, among other things, the educational program that has been designed to meet their unique needs. State and federal regulations provide information on what must be included in the IEP, but do not specify any required form.
There are federal and state requirements for the IEP team and content, which are provided in the Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia (PDF)
Inclusive Practices Partnership Project
The Inclusive Practices Partnership Project was established in order to “recognize outstanding schools and/or educators who have developed programs that have been designed to ensure students with disabilities, especially those with more significant academic and behavior needs, have access to inclusive education with their peers in general education settings”.
