Education Plan (IEP)
Individual Education Plans (IEPs) are learning and teaching
plans developed for students who learn in a different way or at a different
rate than their classmates.This written record outlines a child’s individual
program and helps parents, guardians and teachers track the student’s progress
and plan next steps in learning.

County District School Board brochure on the Individual Education Plan.
Identification, Placement, and Review Committe (IPRC)
Exceptional pupils are identified as such by an Identification,
Placement, and Review Committee (IPRC). Upon receiving a written request from a
student’s parent(s)/guardian(s), the principal of the school must refer the
student to an IPRC. The IPRC will decide whether the student is an exceptional
pupil and, if so, what type of educational placement is appropriate. The
principal may also, on written notice to the parent(s)/guardian(s), refer the
student to an IPRC.
