On April 24, 2002, the Department of Public Instruction received a complaint under state and federal special education law from XXXXX against the Wrightstown School District. This is the department's decision regarding that complaint. The issues are whether the district, during the 2001-2002 school year, failed to:
- implement the individualized education program (IEP) for a child with a disability regarding use of a picture exchange system and staff training relating to the child's disability;
- regularly inform the parent of the child's progress toward the annual goals and the extent to which that progress is sufficient to achieve the goals;
- review the current IEP in a timely manner; and
- include the required participants at the child's IEP team meetings.
