Clip to ScrapBook #2

the IEP team members, the goals set are S>M>A>R>T goals--specific, measurable, ATTAINABLE, relevant and time specific. You look at the whole child when choosing goals. If the child has a goal that cannot be reached within an IEP cycle, in spite of best efforts of student and teacher, that goal was not attainable and was too hard.

In the case of a true disability, another year in sixth or any one grade will most likely not help significantly.

Most kids with IEPs get social promotions across the grades. We don't want a big 15 yr old in with your sixth graders. Plus, Some kids with academic issues also have social issues. But to be separated from the kids they already know (and who know them) could cause a setback or add to frustration and resentment.
