It is important to stay close to the student, teacher, school and the administration of a student's IEP to ensure that the services and accommodations in place are effective as the parent can always seek to modify the IEP if needed.
On-Going Educational Planning
Once a child has received special education services, their program is an ongoing concern and must be addressed annually at a minimum by the school district.
Once a student has had an initial assessment and found to be eligible for special education, the school must assess the student every three years to re-establish eligibility.
Once a student has been found to be eligible for special education and given an Individualized Education Program (IEP), the school must update the IEP annually for as long as the student is eligible.
