Fixed an issue where the associated text boxes were displayed when “No” was selected for the “Yes” or “No” checkbox immediately after “Guidance: A physician statement is required….”

SPEDSM-40209IEP: Transition Considerations

Updated the system to not allow the section to be completed when the Parent has not given consent to include a community agency representative and the Parent's consent/no-consent signature was given after the Superintendents' signatures.


Added the option to include more participants who could attend the meeting.


When an IFSP is set to "Periodic Review" on the cover sheet, and the parent consent checkbox at the top of the Early Intervention Services or Other Services section is set to "No," the Parent Signature section of the Consent and Commitment page will be suppressed.

SPEDSM-45099Invitation to Attend IEP Meeting document

Updated the document so that multiple attendees can now be selected in the Invitation area. However, only the first two attendees (who are selected to attend) will appear in the Invited Team Members area.

Per state guidelines, each of those attendees will be listed as a Parent/Guardian.

Updated to display the "IS_SPED" profile tag for students who have not exited Special Ed and have an IEP Plan Type with a primary disability.

Retired and replaced the "Medicaid Parent Notification and Consent" document with the "Parent Notification and Consent for Medicaid" document. There is no "as of" date in the new document, which allows users to use it for both special and general education students. This new document will enable users to obtain parental consent to bill Medicaid one time - even when students transition from special education to general education and vice versa.
