I had to do the exact same thing this year:

“I started putting everything in an email. And not just to the Special Education teacher, but also to the Principal, Vice Principal, and every General Education teacher he had. When that didn’t work, I looped in the Director of Special Education for the district. I made sure I knew the process, so I could say things like “if progress is not made by [date], I will be proceeding with filing a formal complaint with so-in-so”.”

It sucks, but it certainly got everyone’s attention, and they have all been more attentive to following the IEP since. It’s still not implemented on the level it should be really, but it’s night and day better! 🙂
