How Long Does an IEP Last? What if I Need HELP!?
“How long does an IEP last?”
An IEP is valid for one calendar year. However, the parent or school can request an IEP review at any point during the year: if the student’s needs have changed, or if the IEP needs to be amended. If the IEP is amended, the original expiration date remains in effect. If the IEP is completely re-done, a new expiration date will take effect.
