IEP Specialist Team (IST)
The IEP Specialist Team (IST) is made up of special education teachers and supports school based teams by composing Individualized Education Programs. The individuals on the team are responsible for coordination, planning and preparation of IEP documents and processes related to initial and annual IEPs. In addition, the IST works cooperatively with administrators, the Behavior & Social Team, the Assessment and Evaluation Team, and campus staff in order to ensure our district is providing the most appropriate programs for students with disabilities.
