Screening and Evaluation
Your child’s school has a screening process in place that identifies students who may need special education. This process may or may not lead to an initial evaluation for special education and should include:
- A review of the student’s records, including attendance and report cards
- A review of the student’s vision and hearing
- Assessments at reasonable intervals to determine a student’s performance based on grade- appropriate standards in core academic subjects
- A systematic observation of the student’s behavior in the classroom or area in which the student is displaying difficulty
You may request an initial evaluation at any time, without going through these screening activities.
