IEP Timelines

  • Invite parents to IEP meeting- Invitation to IEP or Other Meeting at least 45 calendar days prior to the annual review date of IEP. (45 days is a “best practice” suggestion: 10 calendar days for annual review is required.)
  • IEP must be developed with the parents within 30 calendar days after the evaluation report is issued


  • IEP must be developed with the parents on an annual basis based on the annual IEP review date

  • IEP must be implemented no later than 10 school days after the parents have approved the IEP and Notice of Recommended Educational Placement (NOREP).
  • Prior to implementation of IEP in 10 school days, the IEP must be completed and distributed to the parents, student file, and teachers who must implement the IEP.

If Parent(s) do not approve the IEP, see Procedural Safeguards and Dispute Resolution process and timelines.



If the parent requests the IEP and indicates need for formal dispute, contact the Special Education Office immediately. There are additional legal issues that must be addressed.
