Maryland Statewide IEP Process Guide


All Individualized Education Programs (IEP) written in Maryland follow a statewide format. Parents can refer to the Maryland Statewide IEP Process Guide to better understand the intent and purpose of each section of the statewide IEP as well as explanations of the IEP decision-making process. The Maryland statewide IEP complies with the requirements of the 2004 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA).
