    Individual Education Program Team

    A student's disabilities and needs are determined by an Individual Education Program Team comprised of individuals familiar with the student and knowledgeable in special education.  Teams may  include: general education teachers, special education teachers, school psychologists, parents, related services personnel and school administrators.  This team determines if a student qualifies as a student with a disability and what services are needed.
