What is an individualized educational program?
The purpose of Maximilian School is to ensure that every student receives quality education according to his/her unique needs. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to have quality education. That is why, in our school we have a special department consisted of professionals who evaluate the needs of every student. If the student is found to have special educational needs, our team develops an individual plan for him/ her.
Individual education planning (IEP) is the process where teachers, support personnel, and parents work together as a team to meet the needs of individual students who require a range of supports. The team develops outcomes or goals based on a student’s current needs and skills, and writes the plan for the school year in the student’s IEP. The written plan is called an IEP.
After developing the individual plan, a team consisted of a neuropsychologist, psychologist, special educator and teachers work on its implementation. The parents are an integral part of the process. They receive monthly reports on the progress and on parent meetings work together with the support team to constantly improve the IEP by setting new and challenging goals.
