Identification, Placement and Review Committee

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.
