ADMINISTRATIVE LETTER: 73
POLICY CODE: IHAC
Following recent changes to the way MaineCare reimburses providers, questions have arisen about who is responsible for changes to Individual Education Programs.
Pursuant to Chapter 101, Section VI, Individual Plan Team Membership, and Section IX, Individualized Plans, changes to an IEP must be determined by the designated IEP team, and must be based solely on the needs of the student, unless the parent and the school administrative unit agree to a change without a meeting pursuant to Chapter 101, IX.3.C(4).
Please review carefully any requests for review of children’s Individualized Education Programs to be sure that they relate to the specific needs of the child. Specific questions can be addressed to Cindy Brown, Interim Director of Early Childhood Special Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
