Facilitated IEP

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.

As a result, all FIEP trainings and all State-coordinated IEP meeting facilitations are temporarily on hold as we search for Amy’s replacement.
