Referral and Identification
Referrals for identification of a student with possible special needs may come from:
- Community agency personnel
- School-based Student Study or Child Study Team
- Any concerned individual
- The student
Assessment will be done only with parent permission, at which time parents will also receive a copy of their rights. Upon identification of a special need for a student, the IEP Team shall consider appropriate services and placement.
Arrangements will be made to have a student's strengths and possible needs evaluated. This will be done through testing and conferences held among those who have worked with the student: teachers, nurses, counselors, therapists, psychologists and others. The assessment must be completed and an IEP meeting held within 50 days after receipt of a signed assessment plan.
