SECTION 3
WHEN AN IEP MEETING MUST BE CONVENED

An IEP meeting must be convened under the following circumstances:

  1. Within 30 days of determining a child eligible for special education and related services.
  2. On or before the IEP annual review date.
  3. When considering a change in the IEP (including placement).
  4. At the reasonable request of any IEP Team member including the parent, guardian, a person acting as a parent or surrogate parent, and the child's teacher.
  5. To review or create an assessment plan to develop a behavior intervention plan in discipline matters related to suspensions or expulsions.
  6. LEAs should encourage the consolidation of re-evaluation meetings and other IEP meetings.

An IEP is in effect for one year only. It is not appropriate to use an IEP Amendment Form to extend the duration of an IEP. IEP meetings should be scheduled well in advance of the annual review date to ensure that all IEPs are current.

Note: Specific day-to-day adjustments in instructional methods and approaches that are made by either a regular or special education teacher to assist a child with a disability to achieve his or her annual goals would not normally require action by the child's IEP Team.
