Connecticut IEP Manual


The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has developed a new Individualized Education Program (IEP) document with input from a representative group of stakeholders. The CSDE has required the use of this document for all new IEPs written for students in the State of Connecticut beginning July 1, 2022.  The document is supported within the Connecticut Special Education Data System (CT-SEDS).  Additional Information can be found on the CSDE New IEP Website.

The purpose of this manual is to assist planning and placement teams (PPTs) in creating high quality IEPs for students in Connecticut. Please note that not every field in the IEP has a corresponding description included in this manual.
