Who Needs a Copy of the Written IEP?

Written IEP(October 25, 2011): When a written IEP has been finalized, parents must receive a copy at no cost to themselves. The IDEA also stresses that everyone who will be involved in implementing the written IEP must have access to the document. This includes the child’s:

• Regular education teacher(s);
• Special education teacher(s);
• Related service provider(s) (for example, speech therapist); or
• Any other service provider (such as a paraprofessional) who will be responsible for a part of the child’s education.

Each of these individuals needs to know what his or her specific responsibilities are for carrying out the child’s written IEP. This includes the specific accommodations, modifications, and supports that the child must receive, according to the written IEP.

Parents’ permission is required! Before the school can provide a child with special education and related IEP services for the first time, the child’s parents must give their written permission.  The process leading up to a written IEP that has been negotiated by the parties can be quite complicated.
