Individual Education Planning (IEP) is the process where teachers, support personnel and parents work together, as a team, to meet the needs of individual students who require additional supports. The team develops outcomes/goals based on each student’s current skills and needs, and a plan for the school year.

All IEPs, regardless of an individual student’s needs, contain certain essential components:

  • Student identification and background information.
  • Consensus on a student’s abilities and needs.
  • Student-specific outcomes/goals.
  • Performance objectives.
  • Teaching methods, materials and strategies.
  • Names of team members who will implement the IEP.
  • Where it will be implemented.
  • Plans and timelines for evaluation and review stages.

The IEP module can be customized for each school’s needs, including different IEP layouts for different grade levels or groups of students.
