NCEO Policy Directions: Recommendations for Addressing Standards and Assessments on State and District IEP Forms (#12)
This year 2001 report provides specific recommendations for how to make IEPs reflect goals and services that support students with disabilities in learning toward high educational standards. The report provides background on IEPs before IDEA 1997 and changes since that time. Recommendations address topics such as adding alternate assessments to IEP forms, including implications of assessment decisions, offering statewide training on standards-based IEPs and assessment options in easily accessed locations, and clearly labeling IEPs so districts know what information is required or recommended.
