When your child with an IEP receives his Report Card, a separate form should also be included that directly assesses the progress they are making towards each of their IEP goals.
This should be a detailed summary of where the child is functioning, using specific data, to give you a clear understanding of how close your child is to reaching EACH of their IEP goals.
Simply stating “Sara is making sufficient progress towards her goal” is not acceptable. Hold the school accountable for giving you specific reporting and data progress monitoring towards your child’s IEP goals. It is specifically stated, in your child’s IEP, that you will be provided this information every 9 weeks.
