Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. Office of Special Education and Early Intervention Services.
This Michigan Department of Education manual provides a detailed guide for members of a child's Individualized Education Program (IEP) team in completing required forms for: (1) development of IEPs for students with disabilities; (2) evaluation review; and (3) manifestation determination review (required when a change of placement is due to disciplinary reasons). All guidelines were developed to fully comply with the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). An introduction notes new requirements related to input during evaluation, participation in the eligibility decision, participation in the placement decision, consent for reevaluation, participation in meetings, and receipt of progress reports. In the main body of the manual, each element in each form is explained with citations referring to the relevant federal and state laws, federal regulations, and administrative rules. (DB)
