This is my lifesaver! It took me 7 years of flipping through hundreds of pages of I.E.P.s to come up with a better solution to make more use of my limited time. We all know that every word in an I.E.P. is important, but we also know they are frequently-used areas that you refer to more than others. This form is NOT to replace your students' I.E.P.s, but to provide a quick reference sheet for each student with all the most important information from their I.E.P. In a small binder of folder, rather than an entire filing cabinet, you can have a one-page quick reference for each of the students on your caseload! I have made this form a word document so you can alter it to fit your district's I.E.P.s, if necessary.
Included in this form you will find spots for:
-Goals & Assessment Responsibility
....and even more!
This is a great way to quickly get to know your new caseload at the beginning of each year. I sit down with an I.E.P. and this sheet, and introduce myself to everything I need to know about my new student. Does it initially require some time? Yes. Has it saved me hours throughout the year? Yes!
