    The Department of Special Education is excited to partner with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to offer Facilitated Individualized Education Program (FIEP) Team Meetings.

    An FIEP is an IEP Team Meeting lead by a facilitator and designed to be a collaborative dispute prevention and resolution process used when members of an IEP Team agree that the presence of a third party would help facilitate communication and problem solving. All facilitators participated in an intense three-day professional training on Conflict Prevention and Resolution through the IEP Team Meeting Facilitation process developed and facilitated by Doug and Joyce Little of Key2Ed, Inc. IEP Facilitators also participated in additional days of training by the GaDOE on IEP process and development, GaDOE required assessments, Georgia Standards of Excellence, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Georgia’s Special Education Rules, and more. FIEP requests may be made beginning October 1, 2018.
