Individualized Education Program

A legal document that describes a student’s learning needs, the services the school will provide, and how progress will be measured. A written document that includes (1) a statement of the student’s
present level of functioning, (2) a statement of annual goals and short-term objectives for achieving those
goals, (3) a statement of services to be provided and the extent of regular programming, (4) the starting date
and expected duration of services, and (5) evaluation procedures and criteria for monitoring progress. The IEP
is developed mutually by the child’s parents with a team of Seattle Public Schools specialists.
