Customer Question

I am a special Ed teacher. I have quite a few students who are on grade level in math but just a little below average. They still need inclusion services in math but do I have to have a math goal. Every time we have a goal we have to progress monitor once a month and it takes quite a bit of time

Yes, these goals need to be written into their IEPs as well. Absent goals, these students will lose their inclusion services.

If you believe that the students no longer need inclusion services, you can raise this at their IEP meeting, and suggest that this be removed, but I would recommend discussing this with your SELPA and/or Program Manager for more specific assistance in your program.

They need inclusion services but they don't need the continual progress monitoring
Expert:  CalAttorney2 replied 10 months ago.

I understand that monitoring goals takes a significant amount of time.

But you are focusing on the task rather than the fact that student achievement and progress towards goals is what entitles them to the inclusion services. If you remove this, it removes the basis for them to receive these services.
