IEP/IPRC Meetings & Support-Navigating the School System
What is IPRC
IPRC stands for the Identification Placement Review Committee. The IPRC identifies students with exceptionalities and based on the exceptionality presented, can determine what type of educational placement is appropriate. Parents and guardians may attend IPRC meetings to discuss their child’s needs. Based on these discussions the IPRC can recommend the special education programs and/or services that it considers to be appropriate for the student.

What is an IEP
IEP stands for Individual Education Plan. “When an Identification, Placement, and Review Committee (IPRC) identifies a student as an exceptional pupil, the principal must ensure that an Individual Education Plan (IEP) for that student is developed and maintained. An IEP identifies the student’s specific learning expectations and outlines how the school will address these expectations through appropriate accommodations, program modifications and/or alternative programs as well as specific instructional and assessment strategies. The learning program provided for the student is modified on the basis of the results obtained through continuous assessment and evaluation.”
