AMENDMENT WITHOUT A MEETING

AMENDMENT WITHOUT A MEETING

Authorities: 34 C.F.R. Part 300 
 
 
 
  FEDERAL AND STATE REQUIREMENTS
After the annual admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) meeting, changes to the individualized education program (IEP) may be made either:
  • By the entire ARD committee; or
  • By amending the IEP rather than by redrafting the entire IEP.

Eligibility determinations, changes of placement, and manifestation determination reviews will not be conducted through the amendment without a meeting process.

 
AMENDMENT PROCESS
  • The parent of the child with a disability and the local educational agency (LEA) must agree not to convene an ARD committee meeting for the purpose of making changes to the IEP; and
  • The LEA must develop a written document to amend or modify the child's current IEP.
 
REVISED IEP
If the IEP is amended without an ADMISSION, REVIEW, AND DISMISSAL COMMITTEE MEETING, the ADMISSION, REVIEW, AND DISMISSAL COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP must be informed of those changes.
Upon request, the parent must be provided with a revised copy of the IEP with the amendments incorporated.
