Are IEP's Taken Seriously at PS 154 in the Bronx?

http://www.southbronxschool.com/2015/06/are-ieps-taking-seriously-at-ps-154-in.html

Individual Educational Plans, or IEP's if you will, are sacrosanct. They are mandated by federal law and are legal documents. Sadly, too many manipulate IEP's for their own evil ways and parents are not aware of their rights and how much power they wield.

Several disturbing stories from sources deep within my now former school, PS 154 in the Bronx, have come to The Crack Team in recent weeks alleging monkey business with student's IEP's and services that are mandated to them.

The first allegation, and this was from several sources as well, was a veteran staff member with involved in the IEP's for the last several years at 154 decided that at the end of the 2013-14 school no longer wished to be involved in the IEP process anymore and decided to move on to a different path at PS 154.

1. Speaking from personal experience,

 

IEPs are not always taken seriously in at least one other school. Also speaking from experience, parents don't always understand exactly what's involved with an IEP (I didn't) and so may not follow up to see that they're followed rigorously.

2. IEPs are rarely taken very seriously at any school

 

Unless their feet are held to the fire. Fortunately, most states have good protections that can be enforced, and there's always the feds (it becomes a civil rights enforcement issue IIRC).
