Monitoring

The IEP team must meet to review and revise your child’s IEP at least once each year. The IEP also serves as a monitoring tool to make sure your child’s progress, program and placement continues to be appropriate. Other types of monitoring include:

  • reviewing your child’s schoolwork
  • tracking progress towards annual goals through report cards and other documentation, as required in the IEP
  • considering any new testing, or new information, available about your child
  • sharing information at parent/teacher conferences
  • maintaining home-school communication through communication logs, forms or telephone calls

If you or any IEP team member has concerns about your child or that your child is not on track to meet his/her annual goals, an IEP meeting to strategize solutions, and revise the IEP or placement, as necessary, should be scheduled.
