Education Plan

Determining Eligibility

Based on the evaluation, the CPSE determines if your child is eligible for services.

Parent Meeting

The CPSE then schedules a meeting to discuss the type and intensity of services that are needed. The CPSE creates an appropriate Individualized Education Program (IEP), a detailed plan of your child's goals and objectives and the necessary programs and services to meet those goals.

Who attends

The CPSE includes educators and administrators from your school district, a representative from the evaluation team and a parent representative to answer your questions. A representative from the county health department may also attend.

IEP Includes

  • Your child/s current abilities, needs, and evaluation results.
  • The goals and objectives your child will be striving to achieve this year.
  • The programs and services your child will receive to help meet those goals.
  • Special equipment your child may need in school.
  • If transportation is needed, and any special transportation requirements.
  • How and when you will receive reports on your child's progress.

Recommended Services

The CPSE will recommend the appropriate placement and services from a range of services.

Related Services

The CPSE may recommend related services, which may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, or special education itinerant teacher (SEIT) services provided in the home or at a location convenient for the child.

Special Education Preschool

The CPSE may also recommend a special education preschool classroom and determine if your child would benefit from a full time or part time program. Some programs are integrated with typically developing children, others are segregated for only children with special needs. Little Lukes is an approved integrated preschool setting.
