The statewide Special Education Directors and legal consultant for the Iowa Department of Education, attorney Thomas Mayes, have shared legal requirements for having IEP/IFSP documents translated. In addition to Prior Written Notices being translated, any ‘Consent’ documents must also be translated into the parent’s native language.  Additionally, IFSPs must be translated if the family requests it. 

Please contact Donna Perry at with your translation request.  Please include the English version of the Prior Written Notice, the Consent that you want translated, IFSP if requested, and a date that you would like the document(s) returned.
