Determining Special Education Placement
All special education placements are determined by the Committee on Special Education, the Subcommittee on Special Education and the Committee on Preschool Special Education.
These committees, in conjunction with parents and teachers, help develop Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for each school-age or preschool-age pupil with a disability on an annual basis.
The IEPs include information about the unique learning needs of each student, such as learning rate, levels of social and physical development and the students' management needs. The document also includes annual goals and short-term objectives in academic, social and other areas for the student's school year. The IEP will serve as a curriculum plan of action and a source of evaluation for the student's progress during an entire school year.
