But tutoring can be a related service which would be in an IEP. The IEP can allow for tutoring if that is necessary for the student to make academic process. Honestly, with kids who are mainstreamed, it can be a good way to give them the individual attention they need as well as access to the general education classroom. Most times it is one or the other - attention or grade level curriculum but not both.
I think that's fine if you have the staffing for it. If you're going to write in 1-on-1 tutoring for an IEP though, then you need to have somebody that will be able to do it on-contract and still gets necessary prep time.
They would have to get a tutor on contract, but it doesn't have to be a teacher. It could be a private tutor who contracts with the school district.

That's a valid point and a good idea, but I'm not sure most districts would be willing to put it in an IEP and pay for it unless the parents are very demanding.
No. They aren't willing to do so. IEPs rarely are written based on what the student really needs and most often written based on what the district decides they want to give and how they want to give it. This is why special education students have such dismal success rates.
So sad but true.
We use an app by which all involved teachers log in to provide input on IEPs. I have an input request currently sitting in email for a December iep meeting. I'll deal with it next week after the holiday.
