Who has to be part of the IEP team (ARC in Kentucky)?

Posted by:

The IEP Team is responsible for developming the IEP and ensuring its effective implementation so that the child can receive special education and related services.  The IEP Team must include the parents of the child with a disability, a regular education teacher (if the child is participating in the regular education environment), a special education teacher, and a representative of the school district.  In addition, the parent and the school district can agree to add other members knowledgeable about related services or with expertise about the child. -Source IDEA Guide to Frequently Asked Questions.
