Special Education Accommodation IEP Checklist for Teachers

Special education IEP checklist for teachers to track each student’s supports. Record accommodations, modifications, interventions, and supports for IEPs, 504s, and special education.


We all know the importance of supporting struggling students, at-risk learners, and special education students.

Keeping track of who gets what accommodation? That’s another story. (And if you’re confused about accommodations versus modifications, etc., click here to learn the difference!)


As teachers, we struggle to keep track of so many supports for so many students. It’s confusing and hard to keep up.

A simple checklist can save you the hassle and fuss. Not only can this checklist save you time and help you stay organized, but it can also keep you compliant with special education, IEPs, and 504s.

This checklist includes common, easy-to-understand accommodations, modifications, and supports. All you need to do is check the correct boxes (and highlight them if you want) for each student, and you’re set. It’s perfect for keeping track of what each student needs.

The supports are grouped according to how a teacher uses them under headings such as Classroom Supports, Testing, Giving Directions, Technology, etc.

When you download the FREE Organizational Forms Kit, you’ll receive an essential IEP checklist of student supports. Complete a page for each student requiring support.student-accommodations-checklist-for-teachers-organizer

Slip these forms into your teacher binder to reference during school meetings, phone calls, and parent conferences. They’re also perfect for leaving with substitute teacher plans, so I keep one in my sub binder (sub tub).

These forms also make excellent reference and documentation tools during meetings because they provide a range of supports that can be discussed. Then, after the meeting, simply photocopy and distribute.

How I complete my forms:

Before school even starts, I complete a form for all of my students on an IEP or a 504. I keep those in a section of my teaching binder with my lesson plans, grade book, and other essential forms. I also stash a few blank copies that I can fill out as needed during meetings with my fellow teachers.
