The Many Functions of the IEP

For this week’s FREE tool, we’ve got something for the conference room wall. It’s a flow chart to help you keep track of the many functions of the IEP. The IEP is the central educational document for students with disabilities. It serves as a tool for: instruction, communication, management, accountability, and progress monitoring. This flow chart illustrates a big-picture view that will inspire IEP teams with what’s at stake when developing this important document. The flowchart comes from A Principal’s Guide to Special Education, a CEC book that provides both a quick reference and a comprehensive overview of the complex world of special education. It is filled with handy tables, checklists and appendices such as this week’s IEP flowchart, all of which provide easy access to information about special education for busy administrators and special educators.
