Announcement from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services
Your Family May Be Eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The ACP provides eligible households up to $30/month off internet bills (or $75/month on Tribal lands), as well as a one-time $100 discount off a laptop, tablet, or computer. Nearly 40% of U.S. households qualify for ACP, but millions of families have yet to claim their benefit. Find out if your family qualifies at GetInternet.gov.
Admission, Review and Dismissal (ARD) and Individual Education Plan (IEP)
An Individual Education Plan (IEP) is developed for each student served under special education. This IEP is developed by a team, including the student (if appropriate), his/her parent, teachers and administrators. The annual IEP is created based on the student's Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP).
IEP or ARD meetings are held at least annually to review progress and develop a new plan. Parent participation is vital to this process. In addition to annual meetings, parents or teachers may request to meet at other times throughout the school year.
