Facilitated IEP Trainings

Facilitated IEP Trainings for 2015

Because the six regional Facilitated IEP (FIEP) trainings in the fall of 2014 were so successful, the Arizona Department of Education/Dispute Resolution Unit is happy to announce additional FIEP trainings for 2015. There will be a training on February 4-5 at the Peoria Unified School District.The two-day training is $75.00 and includes breakfast, lunch, and training materials.

IEP facilitation is a student-focused process in which a trained individual (facilitator) assists the IEP team in developing an IEP that provides a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to the student. The Dispute Resolution Unit believes there are three components needed to facilitate a successful IEP meeting: standardized meeting practices; knowledge of the IEP process; and the use of meeting management skills that aid in minimizing conflict and maximizing collaboration. This training is designed to teach these three components.

Who Should Attend: Any school personnel involved in a student’s IEP including special education and general education teachers, district representatives, and school psychologists.
