Your child is being evaluated, what should you expect?
Students may be referred to the special education process at some point in their education. Referrals may come from a variety of sources, but the purpose of the evaluation is to look into an area of suspected disability through testing. The testing process may take up to 45 school days to evaluate and meet as a team to discuss the results. A team is defined by the parents/guardians, the student's classroom teacher, a special educator, and other related professionals that have completed evaluations or have information to add about the child's programming, such as a reading specialist.
