            PRE-IEP PLANNING STRATEGIES

               Schedule IEP meeting by due date.
               Consider scheduling a pre-meeting with staff, but do not predetermine anything regarding the student’s
               IEP at the pre-meeting.

               Confirm availability of all required participants on the scheduled IEP date.

               Complete all assessments reports and exchange for internal review.

               Provide draft assessment reports to Parent(s) for review prior to meeting.

               Solicit input from Parent(s) regarding their concerns and the IEP agenda.

               Request copies of any private assessments Parent(s) want considered.

               Consult with providers regarding draft goals to avoid duplication and ensure consistency.

               Gather data to establish clear baselines for each proposed goal and progress on every implemented goal.
