I understand students have goals included in their IEP that *should* be met by the end of the school year.

One thing to remember, as well, is that IEP goes for one calendar year, which often does not match up with a school year, so it is entirely reasonable that a student has not met his goals in May, if his plan starts mid-year.

It also depends a lot on the disabilities you will be serving. A student with Intellectual Disability may never master certain concepts and the goal isn't necessarily to get them to grade level, but rather to teach them functional life skills.
