IEP Amendments vs. Reconvene in SESIS
Amendments
 Depending on the circumstance the
user may create a Notice of IEP
Meeting, or a Waiver of IEP Meeting,
when an IEP Amendment is needed.
 The Date of IEP will be the same as
the IEP being amended when an IEP
Amendment is completed.
 Associated compliance dates will
not change.
 The attendance page may be
required as part of an IEP
amendment.
Reconvenes
 A Notice of IEP Meeting will always be
created for an IEP Reconvene.
 For IEP Reconvenes the new IEP date
will be entered on the IEP and captured
on the Student Profile once the document
is finalized.
 Compliance dates will adjust
accordingly based on the new IEP Date.
 The attendance page is always required
as part of a Reconvene.
