INITIAL & REEVALUATION REFERRAL
Under IDEA an LEA (District) must conduct a comprehensive initial evaluation or reevaluation if any of the following occur:
A parent of a child initiates a request for an initial evaluation to determine if the child is a child with a disability, or an LEA (District) makes a referral.
If the public agency determines that the educational or related services needs, including improved academic achievement and functional performance, of the child warrant a reevaluation; or
If the child's parent or teacher requests a reevaluation.
TIP: Always request assessment's in writing. This begins the legal timeline. Write out a list of your concerns about your child, and give examples, if possible.
