WHAT IF MY CHILD IS IN THE SPECIAL EDUCATION EVALUATION PROCESS?
Some types of evaluations can be completed virtually. If there are evaluations that need to be done in person, parents can agree to extend the evaluation timeline. The written agreement includes a specific extension of time measured in school days.
A child’s eligibility might not be able to be determined if there is a need for face-to-face assessment and observations. For the not-yet-eligible child, districts are encouraged to have an IEP team develop a contingency learning plan.
