Individualized Education Program (IEP)
Eastern Camden County Regional School District believes that in order for each student to best prepare for adult life, he or she should understand their abilities and disability, the purpose of their IEP, and be an active participant in the development of their IEP. This can be accomplished through person centered planning, a positive and strength-based planning process that centers on and includes the student in all meetings and discussions. Students are encouraged and supported to attend their IEP meetings and to share information about themselves with others. Our case managers work with all students, teaching them the self-advocacy skills necessary to take a lead role in the IEP process whenever possible.
