Summary

Recent state and federal laws require specific changes with regard to the evaluation and placement of special education students, many of which are beyond the principal's knowledge or expertise. Thirteen elementary principals were interviewed to discover the strategies used by principals before referring a student for special education, as well as the preparatory activities they engaged in prior to multidisciplinary team (MDT) and individual educational program (IEP) meetings. The principals' responses regarding their role in such meetings reflected a lack of consensus. In general, the principals viewed themselves as responsible for insuring that students who require special education receive the needed services. Most often principals perform a validating role in which their presence at MDT and IEP meetings lends greater validity to the proceedings. Specific suggestions for principals include getting all relevant people involved in such meetings, helping participants define their roles, and periodically monitoring the progress of special education students.
