In order to ensure that students with disabilities receive an appropriate and individualized education, IDEA requires that, after drawing upon current evaluation information, the IEP team develop a written document, the IEP, designed to meet the unique educational needs of each student with disabilities. IDEA contains clear language about:
- The information which the IEP must contain.
- Who develops the IEP.
- The public agency’s obligation to provide the special education and related services identified in the IEP.
