Federal law requires that the IEP have a statement describing how the child’s progress will be measured.
An important reason for making sure your child’s IEP goals and objectives are measurable is to hold the school accountable for how they are working with your child. It is very difficult to establish that the child has not made progress with vague wording. When the goals are specific, observable and measurable, the parents have a system of keeping up with their child’s progress. The IEP must also list how the child’s parents will be informed of their child’s progress toward the annual goals. Use this checklist to build a good IEP for your child.
SKI in Public Schools (SIPS):
SKI envisions parents and campus staff working together to improve the education outcomes for all students; those in regular and special education. For far too long parents of children receiving special education services have be in the background of parent involvement. SIPS is a vehicle that will keep parents of students receiving special education services in the know about information, services, and opportunities that are available to their children. It will also assist with bridging the communication gap between parents, faculty, and school administrators. This will work with parents who are willing to step up to the plate with SKI.
Become a SIPS Parent Leader. Contact Helen Davis at 713.783.5437 for more details on this program. Learn how it will benefit your child and the campus where your child is receiving educational services.
