How do I request a draft of the IEP?

Published: Mar. 14, 2022Updated: Mar. 17, 2022

Write to the program specialist (or the administrator in charge of the IEP), the teacher, and/or the case worker to request a draft of the IEP at least two weeks in advance of the meeting; you can request that the district provide the draft no less than three days before the meeting. In your request, you can note that it’s important to ensure that you have the information you need to participate meaningfully in IEP meetings, which may include reviewing your child’s records.
