IPPs do not need to be printed off. Just send an email to admin when they are ready for review.
It is important to fill out the PAT accommodations section, even if you are not in a PAT year. In order to receive accommodations, we usually have to show testing as well as history of using the accommodations. These documents are used as evidence of the historical use.
For each goal, the options are: “Goal Achieved”, “Goal Ongoing”, and at the end of the year “Goal Not Met”.
If a goal is ongoing, use strikethrough and change the date.
At each report period, and at the beginning of the year (when the IPP is created), have the signature page completed. After the first meeting, you can send home the IPP signature page, but send a photocopy and keep the original.
At every report period, complete the “Ongoing Transition Planning” portion speaking generally about progress.
Have the goals linked with the “needs” section.
Example of the Evidence IPP portion of a student who we is needing PAT accommodations:
Jessie is regularly provided extra time, a scribe and reading support when completing seatwork or assessments in all four core subjects. During assignments that require more than a sentence or two, Jessie typically requires a scribe to ensure his work is completed within a reasonable period of time and legible.
● Language Arts: classroom assignments are often adapted to the student’s reading and writing ability. Classroom support is available when participating in whole class activities that would be too difficult without assistance. Scribe is used during writing tasks that are being used to assess content and ideas in writing and when time is a factor. Reader is used to assess comprehension of content when text is at a higher level. Initials and dates of the reader/scribe are recorded, each time.
● Math: For problem solving assignments and tests, support is provided to improve comprehension and assess problem solving abilities separate to reading comprehension. Jessie is regularly provided reader and hands-on manipulatives (100’s chart, blocks, coins, calculator, etc.) as well as a scribe, to allow Jessie to focus on demonstrating his learning without the frustration of the writing. Initials and dates of the reader are recorded on tests.
● Social Studies: All tests are administered by reader/scribe. Any in class assignments requiring significant reading are supported by a reader. Initials and dates of the reader/scribe are recorded on tests.
● Science: All tests are administered by reader/scribe. Any in class assignments requiring significant reading are supported by a reader. Initials and dates of the reader/scribe are recorded on tests.
