Individual Education Plans

IEPOnline is for anyone involved in developing or implementing individual education plans (IEPs) to support students with special education needs. Central to the website is the Ministry of Education publication Collaboration for Success: Individual Education Plans (September 2011) which replaces the 1998 Individual Education Programme (IEP) Guidelines.

Collaboration for Success: Individual Education Plans is supported by a collection of tools, tips, and templates on this website, which have been developed by schools, parents, family/whānau, and specialist staff to support practice around the IEP process.

A copy of Collaboration for Success: Individual Education Plans will be sent to every school and additional copies can be requested from the Down the Back of the Chair catalogue or downloaded as a pdf from the Get a copy page.
