Special Education

The special education process includes identification, referral and screening, evaluation, eligibility, IEP/placement and triennial reevaluation. This process begins when a referral from a parent, teacher, physician or another interested person is received by the school. At this time, a school-based team reviews all the available information and determines whether or not there is enough information to suspect that a student has a disability. This school-based team has 10 administrative working days in which to meet and reach a decision as to whether or not a student needs a comprehensive evaluation.
