IEP: an Individualized Education Plan
This being because as learners knowledge and abilities progress, they may require more or less support when entering the next school year. This then means that the strategies and accommodations in place on the IEP may no longer be sufficient or needed.
IPRC: an IPRC identifies exceptional pupils.
Identification: Identifies students who may need special education programs. A student can be identified as needing special education programs within the following exceptionalities: behavioral, communication, intellectual, physical, or multiple.
Placement: Identifies the program placement that will best meet the student’s needs: Determines what type of classroom setting will be appropriate for the learner. i.e. Special Education classroom, mainstream with EA support
Review: The student’s special education needs must be reviewed through the IPRC at least once per school year. A parent may also request a review IPRC meeting once their child has been in a placement for three months.
Committee: The committee (IPRC) is made up of at least three people, one of whom must be a principal or supervisory officer of the school board.
Special Education Placements: The IPRC will decide if the student’s placement will be in a regular classroom with special education support or in a special education classroom.
