I'm new to IEP stuff. What does in-forced IEP mean?
IEP is an acronym for Individualized Education Plan. It describes a student's learning needs, the services which will be provided and how progress will be measured.
In-forced or enforced? An IEP a legal document of a child's individualized education plan. You need to read the IEP and follow the plan that is given. It tells you the program(s) the child with special needs is in (Inclusion, Resource Room - pull-out, Self-Contained)
The plan has goals and objectives that must be taught to the child. It will also have a modifications and adaptations sheet which gives you strategies to use to modify. It needs to be enforced since it is a legal document.

I've never heard of "in-forced IEP". Where did you see this term written? Could it be the person who wrote it is inaccurately using the term enforced IEP?
I need to see the context here. I'm certain that it is supposed to be "enforced".
Even if it is supposed to be enforced, that makes it redundant. The IEP in itself must be enforced.
I'm going to agree with everyone else who is saying that if you saw it written that way, whoever wrote it was mistaken and meant to write enforced, or perhaps it was some kind of computer/auto correct error. I've never heard of "in-forced" IEP.
Although I've never heard it used before, a quick Google search tells me that it's a real term. https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=IEP+in+force&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8#q=IEP+in-force
That said, it seems unusual to have the "d" on the end of the term.
It basically means that an IEP is current, active, in effect... however you want to say it. It's not an expired or out-of-date IEP.
Separate names with a comma.
