Individualized Education Program (IEP)

Every child with a disability who attends public school and receives special education and related services must have an Individualized Education Program (IEP).  An IEP is a document uniquely designed for one specific student, with the intention of improving educational results for that child.  Each IEP must be created in compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and, in Colorado, the Exceptional Children’s Education Act (ECEA).
