Sample Individual Education Plans

(Content originally from EduGAINS.ca)

"Individual Education Plans (IEPs) are a critical tool in driving achievement and well-being for students with special education needs.  Please find below samples to support educators when developing IEPs.  The samples have been developed with and informed by consultations with educators and stakeholders.

There are some components of the IEP samples which will be new for school boards and are based upon the consultation that took place to inform the samples. For example:

In addition to professional assessments, the use of other relevant assessment data including teacher assessments, teacher observations, teacher/student conferences are demonstrated;

Learning expectations are expressed in such a way that is measurable and observable and the student and parent(s) can understand exactly what the student is expected to know or to be able to do; and Transition plans reflect the requirements of Policy/Program Memorandum (PPM) 156

The samples are not intended to be copied. Instead, they are meant to illustrate what IEPs may look like based upon assessment and tailored to the student’s particular strengths and needs." (EduGains)
