If your child is still having problems in school, the school may not be following the IEP or your child's needs may have changed.
- You can request an IEP meeting at any time.
- Your child must be re-evaluated every three years.
- IEP's must be reviewed by the IEP team once every year.
*If your child is on an IEP he or she has extra rights and protections for suspensions and expulsions.
**If your son or daughter is on an IEP and has been removed from school for more than 10 days total in any school year, the school must hold a Manifestation Determination Review hearing before that child can be removed from school. If a child on an IEP is removed from school then he or she is still entitled to receive an education, usually in the form of home instruction.
