Topics include the Individual Education Program (IEP), Confidentiality, Admissions and Release Committee (ARC) and the Special Education Process. This information is intended to be shared with parents, local district staff, and special education students to better familiarize all parties with issues surrounding special education programs in Kentucky schools.
