Thomas Foote

Consultant SERC

Leadership Initiative

IEP Goals


Selecting IEP Goals to Promote

Alignment

• Become familiar with

state standards

• Become familiar with the

state’s approach to

extending standards

• Keep the planning

student-focused

• Consider both specific

academic goals and

broad access goals

• Ask the question: “It is

really academic?”

• Do not “Force Fit” all

goals and objectives into

CCSS. Start with

academic content

standards.

Alignment


When IEPs Promote Alignment


Writing Measureable IEP Goals

• Short-term objectives

should provide a

progression towards

achievement of the

annual goal.

The objectives should

target skills that are

clearly measureable.

The IEP team can build

from present level of

functioning to annual

goal, by writing

objectives that fill in the

levels between the two

points.
