Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) Process is legislated under Regulation 181/98

Regulation 181/98, Identification and Placement of Exceptional Pupils, is one of the most important foundations of special education in Ontario. The regulation outlines the process for establishing an Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC), deciding whether a student is identified as exceptional, the category of exceptionality, the placement decision, and the requirement for an Individual Education Plan (IEP). The regulation also details the parent/guardian’s right to request an IPRC and appeal the decisions of the IPRC, as well as the need for an annual reiew.

In this section are a number of articles to help parents understand the IPRC and their role in the process.
