Keeping track of IEP deadlines is tedious at best. Counting out the 50 day, 10 day, 15 day or 60 day timelines is a waste of time, but we need to know when our Evaluations and paperwork is due!
Input the information into this referrals log and all the "due dates" will automatically calculate. No more counting out dates to be in compliance. I use this every day and wanted to share the joy.
Also, the color coded formatting makes it easy to tell what is left to be done. For example if you receive permission to evaluate the box turns green--letting you know that you have the Green Light to continue with testing. If you do not receive permission to evaluate or decide not to evaluate the kiddo due to an inappropriate referral, you can choose NO from the drop down menu. The No box turns red and the rest of the cells become grayed out--letting you know to STOP, your done with this kiddo.
NOTE this is an excel spreadsheet and can be customized to your state timelines by editing the formula. The spreadsheet is currently set up to calculate 10 days from the referral to provide the parents your referral decision and 50 days from receiving permission to evaluate to complete the evaluation and hold your initial IEP meeting. These timelines are based off of Indiana's state laws. If your state has different laws simply click on the cell and adjust the number of days (e.g. instead of E6+50 for a 50 day timeline you could type E6+60 for a 60 day timeline). Then you can copy that cell down the column so that all of your dates will automatically calculate with your state timeline.
