Can a parent request the data that the IEP team bases the progress report on?

Published: Mar. 8, 2022Updated: Mar. 17, 2022

Yes. The IEP team will review progress on previous goals, and will note whether the goal was met, partially met, or not met. All IEP goals are measured by number data — this means that there should be a number or some form of quantitative data to support these statements. The district cannot simply say the goal was “met” or “not met”: they need to have hard data. If there is no number attached to that goal, request it and request the data that was collected to track that goal. For more information, see our article Progress Reporting for IEPs.
