Monitoring the IEP Process for Quality and Compliance: A Resource for Utah.
Walker, Hill; Kukic, Stevan J.
The document deals with two major issues relating to the individualized education program (IEP) process in Utah--compliance with P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) by local districts and the state's role in monitoring such compliance; and the development, implementation, and review of IEPs and the state's position with respect to assisting local districts in moving toward exemplary practice in these areas. Six sections address the following topics: IEP compliance and the monitoring process, IEP definitions for annual goals and short term objectives, qualitative issues relating to the IEP, the IEP as a concept, structure of the IEP process, and best practice standards in terms of distinguishing between the letter and the spirit of the law. Appended is a page of goals and objectives designed as acceptable examples of the definitions presented. (Author/SBH)
