IEP review today.

Well today at 3:25 I have an IEP meeting to review Lina's IEP for the new school. They sent me a rough draft of the IEP so that I could look over it and right up any questions that I might have. I've never gotten one to go over before hand before. I was able to write up some questions and some suggestions or concerns that I have. There are also some things that I need to have clarified. I am rather excited about going to this one. I really think moving into this district even by a combination of chance and design was a really good idea. Lina has made some real progress in just a month or so than she has in the last year and a half of school. I know it wasn't the other teacher's fault she kept being given more and more children and it made it harder for her to work with the kids as much as she had in the very beginning. When left her class had gone from 8 to 14 with a teacher, 2 full time aides, 2 volunteers that were part time. 

Update after meeting.

I know in 7 years (age 3 -10) I've never gotten one. This is rather exciting.

You would think so but Lina has been in school since she was 3 she is 10 now and this is the first IEP I've gotten before the meeting.

I'm so glad to hear you are optimistic and hope the meeting and Lina's experience is a great one at the new school!

It is mandatory in Maryland that we get a draft copy of the IEP at least 5 business days before the meeting. It is VERY helpful to have it to be prepared!
