The EAP profile 57k is completed for students who have a disability verified through the Education Adjustment Program.
The EAP profile is used to record the range and frequency of a sample of education adjustments made for the individual student.
The six focus areas in the profile are:
When completing the profile:
The school team completes and submits the EAP profile for approval on AIMS. Prior to submission, the school team provides the principal with a printed copy of the completed EAP profile. The principal approves the EAP profile as an accurate record of the current education adjustments for the student by:
Principals are accountable for approving the EAP profile.
For non-state schools the principal is still the accountable officer for approving the EAP profile and must sign the front cover of the printed EAP profile. However, as they are unable to access AIMS, the data entry and approval on AIMS occurs through the local DETE regional office on receipt of a copy of the signed EAP profile.
The original signed copy of the EAP profile is to be kept in the student's school file.
All students must have their EAP profile reviewed and resubmitted on AIMS within 3 years after of the approval date. AIMS will automatically record a review date 3 years past the approval date. School teams can choose to review the EAP profile within this 3 year time period. It is advisable for the EAP profile to be reviewed annually to ensure it is a true reflection of the adjustment currently occurring for the student and reviewed on AIMS if necessary.
Only one EAP profile for each student will be able to be approved by the principal in each school year. If another EAP profile is submitted for approval during the same school year, regional approval will need to be requested by the school principal through the regional office by contacting the Principal Education Officer, Student Services.
All EAP profiles on AIMS that are past the review date will have their profile status converted to 'Profile Expired' and the AIMS record will be inactivated. A new EAP profile will need to be completed and approved on AIMS.
The EAP profile will also be inactivated with a status of 'Verification Expired' if a student's only disability category record is inactivated because of an expired verification review. In this case the verification process and the EAP profile will need to be completed for the student's AIMS record to be considered for resource downloads.
