The Supplementary Aids and Services (SaS) Toolkit is a facilitated process to inform IEP teams as they develop or revise a student’s IEP. The following publication explains the basics of the toolkit process so that parents can determine whether it is appropriate for them to request the toolkit process for their child.

The toolkit process can be useful in assisting IEP teams as they plan for many different situations. For example, IEP teams may use this
process when the team is:

  • Planning for a student to move into a new grade or new school
  • Having challenges in providing supports for a student in a general education setting
  • Addressing barriers to a student participating and learning in general education settings
