Does my child’s teacher(s) need to keep a copy of the IEP in their classroom?

While the teacher may keep a copy of your child’s IEP in his or her classroom, they are not required to do so. The federal law says that the IEP must be ‘accessible’ to each regular education teacher, special education teacher, related services provider, and any other service provider who is responsible for its implementation.

The school system is responsible for informing each teacher of his or her specific responsibilities related to implementing the child’s IEP as well as the specific accommodations, modifications, and supports that must be provided for the child in accordance with the IEP.
