    If the IEP says that the child will get XYZ services, but there's no date of implementation, is there a time limit under which the school district operates?

    In looking over the notes of the IEP (which I haven't yet signed) I realize that there's nothing which says "this program will go into effect by THIS date." That means they can hypothetically spend the rest of the year making it all perfect and never actually put any of it into practice.

    I'm preparing a parent addendum as it is, but I'm curious if there's an expectation that after having the annual IEP review, the school district will implement the new IEP within X days. Anyone know of one?

    "As soon as possible" really opens up the school district to say that they are ready to go forward but are stuck on logistics, which is where we were circling for four out of the five hours last week.
