    educational performance
  • A statement of measurable annual goals including
    short terms objectives if the student is assessed
    below grade level

    services, supplementary aids and services,
    program modifications, and support for school
    personnel that will be provided to, or on behalf
    of, the child

    the regular classroom and extracurricular
    activities

    need to take statewide or district-wide
    assessments, such as the TAKS. If the student is
    assessed in some other manner (such as through
    the SDAA or LDAA) the IEP must specify why this
    decision was made and how the students progress
    will be assessed.
  • Dates for services to be provided, a long with
    the frequency, duration, and location where
    services will be provided and

    guidelines about how an IEP should be developed,
    reviewed and altered as necessary.

    1975 to make sure that children with disabilities
    had the opportunity to receive a free appropriate
    public education, just like other children. )

    learning activities and program refers to
    specific and clearly formulated annual goals and
