In this course Noodle Nook founder Ayo Jones outlines the members, roles, and responsibilities of a properly constituted IEP committee. In addition, she outlines some essential steps to take to ensure you are always complying with federal laws and state-mandated best practices.
This session is part of the Special Education Self-Assessment Series. The series is all about self-evaluation and gaining a better understanding of things you should do to meet your legally-mandated obligations for properly constituted IEPs.
In this 15-minute course, you will learn:
- Which committee members need to be present in IEP meetings
- What roles and responsibilities each member has during an IEP meeting
- What input members may provide to improve the development of a child’s IEP
- Plans that should be drafted to stay in line with federal guidelines
Most importantly, as part of this series, you will answer a series of self-assessment questions to determine how you can ensure your meetings, your special education department, and your district stay compliant with federal guidelines on properly constituted IEP committees. If you work with special education students, have a campus leadership position, or guide policy decisions for your district, then this is a practical course for you.
