I am posting this for parents to obtain help writing IEPs, since Lovejoy ISD has the next to lowest percentage of 6.2% IEPs (Individual Education Plans) of all fourteen Collin County public schools. (Prosper runs a close last at 6.1%) IEPs are needed even more by those with learning disabilites in all honors classes, not less. At least Prosper offers differentiated instruction whereas Lovejoy does not.
