A PPT is a Planning and Placement Team Meeting that will generally take place in the student's school during the regular school day. A Planning and Placement Team reviews referral to Special Education, determines if the student needs to be evaluated, decides which evaluations will be given to the student, and determines whether the student is elibible for special education services.
An individualized education program (IEP) team meeting is of the Planning & Placement Team (PPT) to develop, review or revise an IEP for a child who has been determined to be eligible for special education and related services. Referral and Identification Process diagram

The school is required to hold a PPT meetings every year to review a student's IEP and develop a new one. At any time during the an IEP year, the parent or school can request an IEP Team meeting to discuss making revisions to a current IEP. Oftentimes, parent questions and concerns can be addressed at parent-teacher meetings and do not require a formal meetings.
