difficult child has had an iep for over 2 years now. We had a meeting a few weeks ago and I did agree to everything during the meeting. I couldn't take a copy with me from the meeting because the CM had to finish up a little work on it before printing it out and we all were needing to leave. After I received it to sign, I noticed a couple of things that had been deleted from his last IEP. They weren't that major. But, there are some things that do have me greatly concerned because even though they've always been written in difficult child's IEP this way, it isn't really the accurate way to portray things and since I am pretty sure more outside sources are going to get involved very soon, I think these things should be changed. It would not effect difficult child's accommodations. I guess we just need to find and take time to meet and agree (hopefully) on them. One biggie is that they list everything as a "behavior" problem/objective/goal when it is clear to me after reviewing education for bipolar brochures and sample ieps, that many of them should be listed as other categories (academic, social, etc). But when others pick it up and look at it, right now it looks like his only problem is behavior and they don't need to support or accommodate him in any other way- if he'd just behave, he wouldn't need an iep, IOW. Anyway, I have not signed this iep and this cm keeps emailing me saying she is so concerned that difficult child doesn't have a signed iep on file. The last signed iep (from a couple of mos ago) says that it will be reviewed by such-and-such a date, and that date has past now. Well, it was reviewed and I'm under the impression that it's still in effect until another is signed. The cm seems to believe that this is a major situation because I won't sign this one. She wants me to sign it and request another iep meeting. What makes me really reluctant is that I heard all that 2 years ago and was even told that I HAD to sign it because I was at the meeting and that the MAJORITY of people at the meeting agreed on it whether or not I did, then they put difficult child on a long term suspension and tried to claim that I couldn't fight it because I'd signed that IEP. It didn't work, but it took MONTHS to get through that process. The whole time their defense was that I had signed the iep. (fortunately I didn't sign their behavioral contract that they had written for difficult child and I told difficult child not to sign it because it only said if he did anything else wrong, he would be put out of school.) So, does anyone know where it is written somewhere that the signed iep stays effective until another iep is signed by all required parties? Or something stating that ieps don't expire? I have been getting along well with people in the school this year- I just don't think the cm "gets" the problem. And, I really need the principal to stay on my side right now.
