Referral Process

Referral Process
 
When a child is referred for evaluation through special education, an Assessment Plan is developed specifically for that  child, in all areas of suspected disability.   This plan is mailed to parents for their approval.  A Health & Developmental History Form is included, which will provide the District with information about the child's early development, health information, and strengths / concerns noted by parents at home and school. Parents will also receive a copy of their Procedural Safeguards, which are parent rights and responsibilities related to the IEP process.  The child's assessments will begin upon receipt of the signed Assessment Plan by the special education office.  All efforts will be taken to minimize disruption to the student's school schedule during this process.
