Am I obligated to sign anything at the IEP meeting?

The IEP team may ask you to sign any number of documents at the IEP meeting. They will ask you to sign an attendance sheet which will be incorporated into the IEP. They may ask you to sign a copy of the meeting minutes to verify that it is an accurate representation of what took place. Other than that, you should not feel obligated to sign anything on the spot and it is recommended that you avoid signing any documents asking you to state that you agree with a recommended program, that your child will attend a public school program, or that you agree with the level of recommended services.

It is appropriate to explain that you would like to review the documents at home and will then return them to the committee.
