The Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) has three essential functions:
To determine the strengths and needs of a student.
To identify the student’s exceptionality according to the categories and definitions provided by the Ministry of Education and Training.
To recommend program placement, to be followed by the development/modification of the Individual Education Plan.
An IPRC is composed of at least three persons, one of whom must be a principal or supervisory officer of the Board. This is a requirement of Regulation 181/98 of the Ontario Ministry of Education.
