Facilitating IEPs: Training for LEA Representatives

The LEA (Local Educational Agency) Representative plays a vital and necessary role on the IEP team. Each IEP team meeting must include a LEA Representative who is:

  • qualified to provide or supervise the provision of special education services
  • knowledgeable about the general education curriculum
  • authorized by the district (local education agency) to commit the district resources

This training will provide insight into the critical components of the IEP, a deep understanding of the commitment of resources, and best practices in IEP meeting facilitation, consensus building, and conflict resolution.
