Name: Shay Rushing What is an IEP? What purpose does it serve? An IEP is a written plan, developed collaboratively by schoolpersonnel and a student’s parents, which outlines the student’s current level of development, their annual educational goals, special education services, accommodations, modifications, and related services, as well as a method for monitoring and reporting the student’s progress toward achieving their goals.Explain the difference between procedural requirements and substantive requirements for developing IEPs. How did the Endrew case clarify the substantive standard for IEPs? Procedural requirements for IEPs are that the IEP process is followed and the IEP contains all the required information. An IEP that meets procedural requirements could be considered a technically sound IEP. Substantive requirements for IEPs are that the content of the IEP is sufficient to enable the student to make progress, the student’s progress is monitored, and changes are made if the student’s progress is not appropriate. In meeting these requirements, an IEP would be considered and educationally meaningful IEP. The Endrew ruling clarified this standard by stating an IEP must be “reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child’s circumstances”.
