case conference committee (CCC) determines that a student is eligible for special education
services, the CCC will develop an individualized education program (IEP)
for the student. This is a written program which describes the student’s
participation in the general education curriculum and identifies specific
special education services which the school will provide. Once an IEP
is written, it must be reviewed by the CCC at least once a year and modified
Hollingsworth & Zivitz can help you understand the necessary requirements and more.
An IEP must include:
- The student’s present levels of academic achievement and functional
- Measurable goals which the CCC expects the student to achieve over the
next 12 months
- Information on how the student’s program toward achieving IEP goals
will be measured

Once the IEP has been written, the school must provide a copy at no cost
to the parent within 10 business days of the date of the CCC meeting.
The parent’s written permission is needed before the school can
begin to provide special education services. Once the parent gives this
permission, the school must continue providing services specified in the
IEP until the parent revokes his consent.
One of the problems which our clients encounter is when the school and
parents disagree over a child’s IEP. Parents have legal rights if
the school refuses to design and implement an IEP which addresses their
child’s special needs. If this happens to your child, you should
speak with our Carmel special education attorney. It’s confidential
and there’s no obligation.
