Referral and Evaluation for Special Education

Evaluation Process 

Requests for evaluations to determine special education eligibility may be requested by parents or educators. These requests can be provided orally but will be asking to be shared in writing to the school based CORE MTSS team.  Request will be reviewed and a response will be provided within 10 days of written requests. Parental request may require a meeting with the school based CORE team to discuss concerns. 

If you feel your child is struggling and potentially in need of an evaluation, you may contact a member of the school staff, or you may wish to speak with the special education supervisor or school psychologist for your school. The school psychologist and special education supervisor can review your concerns and discuss the process with you.
