96.14. In the case of a handicapped student or a student with a social maladjustment or a learning disability, the principal, with the assistance of the student’s parents, of the staff providing services to the student, and of the student himself, unless the student is unable to do so, shall establish an individualized education plan adapted to the needs of the student. The plan must be consistent with the school board’s policy concerning the organization of services for handicapped students and students with social maladjustments or learning disabilities and in keeping with the ability and needs of the student as evaluated by the school board before the student’s placement and enrollment at the school. In addition, the plan must state that recourse to the school board’s complaint examination procedure provided for in section 220.2 is an option if the parent or student is not satisfied.
The principal shall see to the implementation and periodical evaluation of the education plan and inform the student’s parents on a regular basis.
