Penns Manor Area School District Where Bright Futures Begin



The document that guides the education of a student with disabilities is called an Individualized Education Program (IEP).  Every child who receives special education services must have anIEP.  This document is developed by the IEP team and includes information about your child's present level of educational performance along with goals that have been set for your child to achieve during the school year.  The IEP specifically defines where, what kind of, and how often special education and related services will be provided.  It identifies the tests or other methods of assessment that will be used to decide if your child is meeting the annual goals.  The IEP includes information about how and when your child's progress will be reported to you.  IEPs are reviewed at least one time each year and more often if needed.  You or another member of the IEP team may request an IEP meeting at any time.
