IEP Development in Texas
Standards-Based Individualized Education Program (IEP) Process Training
SB IEP Process Training focuses on developing present levels of academic achievement and functional performance (PLAAFP) development based on student data; drafting annual goals (educational and practical) and objectives, if appropriate; and collecting data for reporting progress. Participants will understand the importance of these components and how their alignment results in a proper and ambitious individualized education program for students receiving special education and related services. The intended audience for this training is special education teachers, related service providers, and other professional staff members responsible for drafting a student's EP, including present levels of academic achievement and functional performance and measurable annual goals. This training was created by the Child Find, Evaluation, and ARD Support Statewide Technical Assistance Network in collaboration with the Texas Education Agency with state and federal grants.
