Many schools conduct spring IEP meetings for students. Usually the people at this meeting are the current staffers who work with the child. However, in the fall some students will be in a different building or different program. Was this taken into consideration for your child’s IEP?
Was someone from the future building/program invited to the IEP meeting? Was opportunity provided for your child to preview the new facility/program? or arrangements made to do so before the start of school in the fall?
Other things to consider:
- bus scenario different? driver? pick up time? drop-off time?
- lunch scenario different? menus?
- different para?
- different nurse?
- rules/expectations in new building different? does IEP override those?
Advocates at The IEP Center support parents with IEP meetings, and, when issues in IEP meetings become redundant, The IEP Center advocates support parents in mediation, which states offer a free mediator. The IEPCenter.com
