IEPs--To Sign or not to Sign?

Your signature on the IEP: What Does it Mean?



Attending an IEP meeting can be overwhelming as a parent. So much information is discussed and so many decisions are made. Over the years, many parents have asked,  "When I sign the IEP I am agreeing to everything in the plan?"
According to the Illinois State Board of Education’s: IEP Form and Instructions,

"Signing in the participants section of the IEP only indicates attendance at the meeting."

 This wording can be found in the ISBE’s: IEP Instructions document on page 5. The following links will direct you to these documents.
