It's all about you :)!

The meeting will most likely be held at your school.

Your school should let your ERH know about the meeting ahead of time.

The meeting time and location should work for YOU, your ERH, and your school.

34 CFR §300.320
20 USC §1414, 34 CFR §300.321, EC §56341
How you are doing is called your "Present Level of Performance" aka your "PLOP"!

PLOPs tell how your disability affects your progress in the classroom
IEP Goals!
You will have goals in areas that you are having trouble in. Such as:
* Math
* Reading
* Behavior
* Writing
* Speech

These goals must be measurable and explain how you will make progress throughout the year.
What's a Transition Plan?
A transition plan is also called an "ITP" (Individual Transition Plan)

You should have an ITP by the time you turn 16

The ITP should include:
Your education after high school graduation
Any plans for vocational training
Any plans for jobs and job training
Skills to help you live independently
Community resources to help!
An IEP is a legally binding document that can help you in school
YOU know yourself best!
What's an IEP?
