IEPs Clarify Students Learning Capabilities, Goals, and Needs

Utah-based Provo Canyon School provides mental health treatments and education to young people. To address student’s unique learning needs, Provo Canyon School implements individual education plans (IEPs). To create effective IEPs, parents, educators, and other stakeholders work together to assess a child’s capabilities and the best ways to support his or her success in school.

By law, IEPs must include a student’s present level of performance (PLOP) along with his or her educational goals for the school year. A PLOP should include details on a child’s strengths and weaknesses along with performance metrics for various academic subjects. In addition, the plan must document the support and accommodations the school plans to provide for the child. Plans must also detail the methods for assessing progress.

When students turn 16, IEPs must include transition planning to help students graduate from high school and prepare for life after school. Often, representatives from vocational programs or other agencies take part in preparing transition plans.
