This technical assistance paper aims to facilitate the team process for developing Individualized Education Programs (IEP) for students with disabilities.

Topics covered are: the purpose of an IEP, a suggested outline for the IEP meeting, IEP content requirements (with a sample form), school district responsibility for development of an IEP, when an IEP meeting must be held, who attends the IEP meeting, who may initiate IEP meetings, when the IEP must be in effect, when the IEP should be reviewed or revised, how parent participation is obtained, and an IEP checklist. Appendices contain: (1) an interpretation of the IEP requirements under Part B of the Education of the Handicapped Act, as amended by Public Law 94-142; and (2) answers to questions received from teachers, administrators, and parents.
