Finally have IEP in the works. Last meeting went well. Just going over paperwork before signing and had a concern. Since this is our first IEP I wanted to get some feedback. At the meeting we all agreed on what the IEP would cover. The person who typed the form is generally helpful so I do not sense any funny business. However, the admin. is very shady so I want to protect ourselves legally. The wording for it feels very vague to me and in many ways puts the ball all in difficult child's court. While I realize they are HIS goals I am not seeing much in the way of what the school must provide. Since it is a legal document I want to make sure it is right before signing. For example if it says difficult child will do such and such and he doesn't thereby not meeting his goal I can't exactly go to court over it. I see a lot of expectations for difficult child but very minimal detail about how they intend to get him there ie: the things we agreed upon in the meeting. Meeting with a specific teacher mentor to check in and check out everyday in order to keep track of his moods and progress turned into------will check in with staff/teacher/counselor to monitor progress. As a parent who has had to fight tooth and nail to get an IEP I see a lot of wiggle room and opportunity for what was discussed in the meeting to get whittled down to the bare minimum or forgotten altogether. I can see the admin. using the vague wording as an out. What do you guys think? How and where are school obligations/responsibilites accounted for?
