General Education teachers required for IEP and 504 meetings:
Per the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) of '97, Part B specifies the requirements regarding regular education teachers in the IEP process: The IEP team [meeting] for each child with a disability must include at least one regular education teacher of the child. Additionally, other school staff (special education teachers additionally certified in a content area, counselors previously certified in a content area, etc.) may not be substituted for the regular education teacher.
The IEP team required by law: the parent(s), each general education teacher on the student's schedule, the student's IEP Teacher of Record, a school district representative (administrator and/or counselor), an evaluator (school psychologist), the student, a translator if needed, a parent advocate and a friend of the family (to provide emotional support).
If a teacher is not able to attend the IEP meeting, he/she should provide a short narrative to the TOR covering the student's progress in the class, accommodations/modifications which work or don't work well in class, and any other relevant information needed for the team to make informed decisions.
