An Individualized Education Program (IEP) Amendment can make minor changes to 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 make amend the IEP on their own.
The district is required to notify the entire IEP team of the Amendment. Written notice must be provided to the parent.
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.
