The regulations that implement the IDEA require schools to notify parents that an IEP meeting will take place early enough to ensure they are afforded the opportunity to participate. [34 C.F.R. § 300.322(a)] This “meeting notice” must indicate the purpose, time, and location of the meeting, and who will be in attendance. [34 C.F.R. § 300.322(b)] According to the United States Department of Education/Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), the notice may indicate only the positions of the individuals from the public agency who will attend, rather than the names of the individuals. [Letter to Livingston, 21 IDELR 1060 (OSEP 1994)]
