Is there a requirement for "minutes" anymore?
No. Responses to the questions in Written Notice will capture the overarching issues and offerings that were recorded in previously required minutes.
Will SAU's still be allowed to use IEP Team Meeting Minutes to record decisions reached, etc.? If so, will some of the information that is required by the Child Record Audit Form (CRAF) be allowed to be documented only in the Minutes and no where else in our documentation?
Minutes are not required in the new regulations which are in effect. If a school unit chooses to continue using minutes, the minutes would continue to be an educational record with parents needing a copy. Staff must be reminded that no matter what they write in the minutes, the Written Notice must be fully completed. All the elements that were required in the former PET minutes have been added to the Written Notice form.
