An Individualized Education Program (IEP) Amendment can make changes to amend or modify a student’s IEP without convening a full IEP meeting.
The school district and the parent may modify the IEP if they both agree to do so. The school cannot amend the IEP on their own.
An IEP amendment will contain the full contents of the current IEP and reflect changes only to the relevant section(s).
An amendment does not replace the requirement to hold an annual IEP, it does not reset the due date.
When substantial changes need to be made, it is recommended that a full IEP team meeting be convened to develop a new IEP.
