“Multidisciplinary evaluation team” means a minimum of 2 persons who are responsible for evaluating a student suspected of having a disability. The team shall include at least 1 special education teacher or other specialist who has knowledge of the suspected disability.- MARSE R 340.1701b
As part of determining eligibility, when the evaluations are done, the Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team holds a meeting to look at the data/results, and determine if the child meets the eligibility requirements.
A MET form (you can request to see a copy in advance) will be used, and the MET will make a recommendation for eligibility.
The MET report will be presented to the IEP team, this can happen at the same meeting or it may be a separate meeting.
For students already receiving special education services, eligibility must be reviewed every three years through this same process.
