Family and Educator Partnership (FEP)


The Familly and Educator Partnership (FEP) is the updated name for what was known as the Parent & Educator Connection (PEC) in the past.

This is part of a statewide network of parents and educators working together to support educators and parents of children and young adults with special needs.

One of the primary ways that the Parent & Educator Connection/ Family & Educator Partnership serves parents and educators is by supporting good home-school communication.

This includes providing support to families so that they can more effectively participate in the IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan) or IEP (Individual Education Program) process. This may include:

  • Explaining the IFSP/IEP process
  • Reviewing procedural safeguards/ parent rights
  • Helping parents organize their thoughts in preparation for a meeting
  • Attending IFSP/IEP or other school meetings after
  • Being asked by the local school, parents or AEA staff
