Individual Educational Plan (IEP)

The IEP is a written document designed to meet the individual needs of students with disabilities. Parents and staff are partners in the development of the IEP. The written document may be reviewed and amended as the needs of the student changes. An IEP meeting must be held at least annually to review and rewrite. The document is current for a calendar year.

Educational Plan (EP)

The EP is a written document designed to meet the individual needs of students determined eligible for gifted services. Parent (or provided written input), a teacher of gifted, a basic education teacher(or provided written input), and the student, when applicable, are partners to develop the EP. The written document may be reviewed and/or revised at any time. The EP must be updated at least every 3 years unless the student will be graduating at the end of the current school year. EPs should be reviewed and updated when the student transitions from 2nd to 3rd grade, 5th to 6th grade, and 8th to 9th grade. EPs may be written to cover the four (4) year period a gifted student is expected to attend high school.

Service Plan (SP)

A Service Plan is a written statement that describes the special education and related services that a school district will provide to a parentally-placed student with a disability enrolled in a private school. An IEP cannot be used as a Service Plan as it contains additional information that might imply that the student is entitled to FAPE services. The Service Plan contains only information relevant to special education and related services to be provided to the student.
