MEETING TO REVIEW THE EVALUATION AND DETERMINE ELIGIBILITY
The results of the evaluation or reevaluation of your child are now available. By law, we must meet with you to
review the evaluation results for your child, including any evaluations or information you wish to provide, current
classroom-based assessments and observations, and teacher or other staff observations, to determine, with your
input:
1) your child’s academic achievement, functional performance, and educational needs;
2) whether your child has or continues to have an exceptionality; and
3) whether your child needs special education and related services.
MEETING TO DEVELOP THE INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATION PROGRAM (IEP)
As the parent of an exceptional child, you are entitled to a 10-day prior written notice of any meeting to discuss the
needs of your child and develop an individualized education program (IEP). You may consent to hold the meeting
with less than 10-days written notice.
If it is determined that your child is eligible, or continues to be eligible, for special education and related services, the
IEP team will develop an individualized education program (IEP) for your child and determine the appropriate
placement.
The team will make its decisions based upon the results of the evaluation procedures which we previously told you
we would administer in the Notice of Proposed Evaluation and Request for Consent, which you signed. The team
will also consider the strengths of your child and any recommendations you have for enhancing the education of
your child.
Discuss possible changes in your child's individualized education program (IEP).
Conduct an annual review of your child's individualized education program (IEP).
If your child will be at least 14 years old during the anticipated duration of this IEP, the IEP team will develop
postsecondary goals based on transition assessments and transition services to promote movement from school to
post school activities. Postsecondary goals and transition services can be considered at a younger age if determined
appropriate by the IEP Team. Your child is invited by the school to attend the meeting.

PROCEDURAL SAFEGUARDS TO PROTECT PARENTS’ RIGHTS
Both state and federal laws concerning the education of children with exceptionalities include many parental rights.
Receiving notices of action the school wants to take in regard to your child and being a part of your child’s educational
planning team are examples of the rights these laws give you. These laws also require that the school follow certain
procedures to make sure you know your rights and have an opportunity to exercise those rights. A copy of your rights is
provided to you upon request, and at least once each year. You should carefully read them and, if you have any
questions regarding your rights, you may contact the school representative listed above.
