DESE has prepared a question and answer information document on MoVIP and Special Education. This can be found at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Compliance/PDF/MoVIPQA.pdf. This addresses many of the questions that DESE has received recently. The Q&A will be periodically updated as more issues arise.

You may have received a request from the MoVIP program to prepare an IEP for a student enrolled in MoVIP. Local districts are responsible for preparing the IEP for the students who are dually enrolled in the district and MoVIP. The district does not need to prepare an IEP for students who are parentally enrolled in MoVIP and not enrolled in the district. Full time MoVIP students enroll in the district by checking a box on the MoVIP application. For a full explanation of this, please review the Q & A document.

The MoVIP Site Facilitator in your district will receive an email identifying those students or you can contact the MoVIP Section of the Division of School Improvement at 573-526-4219 to check on the status.
