A multi-factored evaluation team (MFE) makes the final disability determination. If a student is identified as a student with a disability, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is written by the IEP team. The team consists of parents, teachers, administrators, and other service providers.
The IEP documents the student's needs and goals that address those needs. The IEP also documents where the goals will be taught and who will work on the specific goal(s). The IEP team is required to educate children in an environment that is as similar as possible to the environment where other children are educated; this is called the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) and could involve a variety of placements.
