Good IEPs Don’t Grow on Trees

IEPs are highly individualized documents, so they can’t be created in a vacuum or drafted from dime-a-dozen templates. Good IEPs grow out of collaborative discussions among students, their families, and their teachers. To guide you in this process, this week’s FREE tool is a checklist of activities to be performed before, during, and after the IEP meeting. The action items are geared towards inclusion, to help teachers be sure they take every opportunity to reach out to families in culturally sensitive ways. The list comes from “IEPs for ELs and Other Diverse Learners,” a guide to using research-based strategies to write effective IEPs for K–12 learners with unique challenges such as language learning or emotional or behavioral disabilities.
