Parent or Staff Initiation of Evaluations
The Response to Intervention team, parents, and other professionals involved with a child may initiate a referral for a special education evaluation. Prior to any formal assessment to determine eligibility for special education services, the school must notify the parents of the referral, secure signed parent permission for the evaluation, and provide parent and student due process rights.
Parents may submit in writing a request for special education evaluation to their building principal. Request must include parental concern affecting child’s school performance.
