IEP Components:

  1. Cover Page: K-12 Student Information

Review theinformation needed on the cover pageof an IEP. Note that every IEP must be reviewed each calendar year, and a full re-evaluation must be completed every 3 years.  Fill in the names of the students in your group and the position each person is role playing in the mock meeting.

  • Factors for the IEP Team to Consider: Note how this information is all based on the student’s PLAAFP.  Discuss how an IEP team must use data collected from the student’s evaluations to develop this portion of the document.
  • The Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP)

The Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance summarizes the results of assessments that identify the student’s interests, preferences, strengths, and areas of need. It also describes the effect of the student’s disability on his/her involvement and progress in the general education curriculum, and for preschool children, as appropriate, how the disability affects the student’s participation in appropriate activities. This includes the student’s performance and achievement in academic areas such as writing, reading, math, science, and history/social sciences. It also includes the student’s performance in functional areas, such as self-determination, social competence, communication, behavior, and personal management. Test scores, if included, should be self-explanatory or an explanation should be included, and the Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance should be written in objective, measurable terms, to the extent possible. There should be a direct relationship among the desired goals, the Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance, and all other components of the IEP.

  • Measurable Annual Goals: Write 4 annual goals addressing the needs evident in the PLAAFP. You should have at least 4 goals addressing at least two subject areas.  Eachannual goal must be connected to the PLAAFP and a specific Virginia SOL, and it must include all 5 goal components: condition, who, behavior/performance, criterion and timeline. Add the full SOL below the goal.

Use your drafted goals and collaborate as a group to complete all yellow highlighted elements of the Measurable Annual Goals pages.

  • Schedule of Reports to Parents: Note how progress reports are planned and the detail of  information required.
  • Accommodations/Modifications: Identify any modifications and/or accommodations that will be provided for the student. Use your drafted accommodations and collaborate as a group to complete the chart  Remember to address testing situations, but statewide assessments will be addressed in the next sections and should not be included here.
  • Participation in State and District Assessments

Review the determination concerningwhether or not the student will participate in the Standard or Alternative form of the state assessment. For the two areas in which the student will participate in the Standard administration, please identify any accommodations that will be provided. Note that any accommodations identified here must be based on the accommodations listed in the previous section for general use in classroom instruction and assessment.

  • Services
    • Reviewthe chart, paying attention to all required information:
      • Service(s): All special education and related services the student will receive. Note that a full IEP would typically also include a statement of justification for each/all services provided.
      • Frequency: Notice how often thestudent will receive service (1 hour daily, 30 minutes 2 times per week, etc.)
      • Location: Notice where service will be provided (general education classroom, resource room, self-contained, etc.)
      • Duration: Notice the starting and ending dates and be aware that these dates would be based on the valid dates of the IEP.
  • Placement: Read and discuss the Description of Placement and Time with General Education Peers. Notice the summary of the student’s placement and discussthe reasoning that could have led to this decision. 
  1. Transition Planning

The transition plan is part of the IEP, but given the age of the student thiswould not have to be completed for his IEP.
