Transcript of The General Education Teacher’s Role in an IEP, Do’s and Don

The General Education Teacher’s Role in an IEP, Do’s and Don’ts of Special Education, & Understanding Placement Decisions (Focused Monitoring Session)
Today our goals are to:
Provide a brief overview of the Special Education process at HF by
Clarifying the general education teacher's role.
Define the various professionals and their role in the development of a student's IEP.
Define the types of meetings that occur at HF.
Discuss the spectrum of programming options at HF and how the team determines what is appropriate for a student.

Benefits of the IEP
IEP's provide many benefits.
They are General Education driven.
They provide a way for many students to have access to an education they deserve.
Learn information about a student that will help them be more successful.
Areas of Concern
While we value the IEP we know that we are not perfect in our implementation.
Concern from the focus monitoring:
General Education teachers being unsure of their role.
Hard to disseminate information.
Meetings can be too short too adequately cover all information.
Please Take our online Special Education Acronym quiz.
