Facilitated IEP is a process in which a student’s IEP is developed by a collaborative team in a structured meeting. IEP facilitation is a student-focused process in which a trained facilitator assists the IEP team in developing an IEP that provides a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to the student.
Arizona’s vision is to build capacity among educators and families to ensure that collaborative, student-focused IEP teams are equipped to make sound decisions in the development of IEPs.
For general information regarding the State-coordinated Facilitated IEP system or to schedule an FIEP training, please contact the Alternative Dispute Resolution ADR Specialist, Lawton Jackson at 602-542-7579.
