Changing the IEP #sped

If the CCC makes changes to a student’s IEP, the school must provide the parent(s) with written notice before it can implement the changes. This written notice must also inform the parent(s) of what steps they may take should the parent(s) disagree with the proposed changes.

Once parental consent to begin services is given the student’s parent(s) should always be included in decisions by the CCC. However, written consent from the parent(s) is not required to revise the IEP. After communicating with the parent(s) about the IEP changes being made, the school has to provide the parent(s) with written notice before it can implement any of the proposed changes. This written notice must also inform the parent(s) of what steps they may take, should the parent(s) disagree with the proposed changes.

If the CCC has completed its annual review and/or revision of the IEP and the parent(s) and school agree to change the IEP without having the whole CCC getting together, the parent(s) and school personnel can change the IEP without getting together for an actual meeting. The school may ask that the agreement to change the IEP without the CCC meeting be put in writing or signed off on by the parent(s). Any changes to the IEP that the parent(s) and school agree to must also be put in writing (written into the student’s IEP).
