How Often Is An IEP Supposed To Be Revised?

How Often Is An IEP Supposed To Be Revised?

My son Daniel is entered Pre-k ESE January 2013. The new school year has started and Daniel will be attending the same school but will have a new teacher. His new Pre-k teacher transferred from another school, has yet to receive Daniels IEP. She says it is an issue with the school board. I have gladly offered her my copy from last year. Do we have to wait until he goes to kindergarten before we get a knew IEP? He is very high functioning and has been placed with similar high functioning… read more

Then there is no excuse for her to not have his IEP. IEPs are housed both in the school file and the central file. It is illegal to house an original in the classroom. So all she needs to do is go to the office and get his IEP out of the file. I'd guess you are in for a rough year if she didn't pull all IEPs before school started. That is part of a teachers first week back of school to pull and familiarize themselves with all IEPs. What if your child had critical life skills and she didn't know. I'd say momma bear needs to make her presence known and get her moving along.

When changing schools the new school must do 1 of 3 things. 1 - accept the old IEP as is and continue services until it is time to renew the IEP (1 year from original start date) 2 - accept the old IEP for 30 days allowing enough time to get to know your child and rewrite an IEP, or 3 - immediately rewrite the IEP. Our school always accepts old (usually uses the families copy because it takes too long for other schools to get a copy to us) and takes 30 days to get to know the child and rewrite. Make sure they are providing your child services while they decide what to do and IEP is a federal document and must be upheld.

@A MyAutismTeam Member it makes sense what you are saying with regards to the procedures that the school/ teacher is following. It has not been a full year since his start date. He did attend extended ESE for the summer 2013 (although they tried to jerk us around by sending him to a D rated school due to school bus transportation limitations during summer break so I drove him) I am in daily contact with his teacher with regards to Daniels strengths and areas that need attention, development, and intervention. School year just started last week but the IEP I insist on her having ASAP so that she can modify it as need. You would have thought that the school would have revised it as the teachers had their conferences to place these children in there new groups. Thanks you all for your feedback it really helps me to know which direction to take.

Perfect thanks CBP....time to lace up the boxing gloves again.. Sometimes I feel like we spend more time wrestling with the schools, than just be able to work with them. But momma bear will always stand for baby bear!

Okay so he should have a new one. I'm gonna meet with his teacher and the ESE director at his school. I like his school but I'm glad tat we decided to get him additional speech, OT thru or own private insurance. He starts ABA next week. The school system here can be slow and I don't want him getting behind. His teacher says it is gonna be a while before she can get organized. But I am gonna press for an IEP revision of get another eval done.
