SECTION 2
RESPONSIBILITY FOR DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE IEP

With the exception of state boarding schools and statewide correspondence programs that enroll out-of-district students (see Section 19 of this part), the District in which the child resides is responsible for developing the IEP and scheduling the IEP meetings. This includes a child placed by the District or a state agency in out-of-state programs.

Parent Invitation

The parent must be invited to IEP meetings. If a child resides in a district different than the parents, the parents still must be invited to the IEP meetings. If the parents are unable to attend the IEP meetings, they must be provided with the opportunity to participate in developing the IEP.

  1. Invite the parent to the meeting. This might be possible if the parent lives near the resident district, or if the resident district is willing to pay the traveling expenses of the parent.
  2. Conduct the meeting at the resident district and involve the parent by telephone.
  3. LEAs should encourage the consolidation of re-evaluation meetings and other IEP meetings.

Implementing the IEP

Once the IEP is written, the District must immediately implement the IEP as written, regardless of any disagreement. Refusal of any IEP Team member to sign the IEP document does not affect the District's requirement to immediately implement the IEP. The IEP Team should work towards consensus and not make decisions based on a majority vote. If consensus cannot be reached, the District must provide the parent with prior written notice of its proposals/refusals. If the parent requests a hearing, the child must "stay put" unless an interim placement can be agreed upon by the parents and the District.
