- IEP Facilitation by the Colorado Department of Education
- Families or school personnel should talk to their special education teacher or coordinator if they feel it is time to engage an IEP Facilitator. The request should go to the district Special Education Director. If the Special Education Director agrees to the use of a facilitator and there is a fee for the facilitator’s services, it should be paid for by the school district since IEP meetings are provided at no cost to the family.
