Jaden BairdIEP IRIS Module1.What is an IEP? What purpose does it serve?An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a written plan that is developed collaboratively by school personnel and a student's parents. This program outlines the student's current level of development, the annual learning goal for the student, special education services deemed beneficial to the student, accommodations and modifications, as well as a way to monitor and report the student's growth towards their goals. In order for a student to receive special education, he or she must have at least one qualifying disability and that disability must adversely affect their educational performance. An IEP is a statement of a school's efforts of providing a student with the best possible chance to succeed academically.1.Explain the difference between procedural requirements and substantive requirements for developing IEPs. How did the Endrew case clarify the substantive standard for IEPs?2.The procedural requirements of an IEP ensures that the IEP process is followed and that the IEP has all of the required information to be a sound IEP. The substantive requirements ensures that the content of the IEP is sufficient to allow the student to progress in a tracked and monitored manner while allowing for changes if the student's progress is not appropriate. The Endrew case clarified the substantive standard for IEPs by acknowledging the fact that Endrew was not making progress with the assistance of an IEP, making it useless. The Supreme Court rejected the initial standard used by the US Court of Appeals.
