What is a Procedure?

  • Written document that may provide the who, what, and when of an activity
  • For identification, the procedure may be a narrative document that describes what happens when a request for special education evaluation is received. It may be a flow chart that provides timelines for what if situations.
  • For discipline, it may be a description the steps used when determining a change of placement. It may be a step by step list of whom to contact when a student with an IEP is being suspended.
