Identification, Placement, and Review Committees (IPRCs) are responsible for the identification of exceptional students and their placement in special education programs. This part of the guide describes the roles, processes, and regulatory requirements related to IPRCs, including processes for appeals and reviews, whether through the IPRC or the special education appeal board (SEAB). This part of the guide also provides information about later appeals, under certain circumstances, to the Ontario Special Education Tribunal (OSET).

Where applicable, the relevant sections of Ontario Regulation (O. Reg.) 181/98, “Identification and Placement of Exceptional Pupils”, which sets out most of the requirements for IPRCs, are referenced in the main text, just below the paragraph under discussion. These section references are hyperlinked to the specific section of the regulation.

Additional information on IPRCs can also be found on the Ministry of Education's website.
