How do you run your IEP meeting? This will be my first one so I am nervous. Thank you in advance.

My agenda

Here's the order of my IEP agenda meetings...I'm assuming its an annual review?
*Introductions
*Reason for coming together (annual review, reevaluation, ...)
*Present levels - emphasize all the positives first! Report of current grades also here and progress over the current year...I do a blurb on transition to the middle school setting since I'm 6th grade too here.
*Ask Parents input here - concerns, how they view their child's progress
Then I look at current goals and objectives and talk about what's been met and what needs to continue and why...
*That leads into current goals and objectives from myself and any related services. This is where they give their blurbs on progress...
*Finish up the rest of the sections on accommodations, minutes & programming for the rest of the year etc
*Thank everyone for coming...reassure parents that they can call you with further questions ...yada yada. Its alot to take in!

Hope you do well! I've been doing this for 17 years and I still get nervous every year when my first one comes up...the more positive you are, the better it goes and the parents will be at ease

Make sure you write draft on the IEP copies you bring to the meeting, because you will be adding and crossing out as you go. You don't want to seem like you are presenting the final IEP before the committee has had a chance to work through it. I also find it helpful to have the signature page handy, so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle.

Don't forget to go over parents' rights! I keep a miranda to read for my parents when I present the rights booklet. I usually do this right after introductions.

Iep Mtg Agenda

This is my agenda for IEP meetings. I tried to just attach the document, but couldn't because it's in Appleworks and I don't know how to change it to something else. Kind of illiterate when it comes to that stuff. Anyway, hopefully you can get the idea. An agenda helps me keep the meeting moving and to be sure I don't forget anything. Someone mentioned going over Parent's Rights. In my district, we mail those out ahead of time, usually with the meeting notice.
Gingercat had some good ideas and explained the process.
Good Luck! Just remember to stay positive and to ask the parent(s) for input as you go along.

Here is how I run mine:

Before the meeting -
* write up draft goals
* fill in draft copies of the IEP paperwork such as present levels of performance and any test scores

Meeting day -
* Call parent with reminder

Meeting -
* Introductions
* go over parent rights
* discuss strengths of student
* ask parent about concerns
* go over academic goals from last year or any behavior issues
* write draft goals with all members present

Some of my meetings have taken as little as 45 minutes and some were a couple of hours. My best advice would be to follow your paperwork as a guideline but don't forget the rights and anything that needs signatures.

Usually the special education director or the special ed liaison runs our meetings. Do you use the HELP program?? I can help you with the order of paperwork if you need it.
