What is a re-evaluation?
  • A re-evaluation is required every three years to determine if your child continues to require special education services. This re-evaluation may be completed with or without additional testing. The IEP team, of which you are a part, must review existing data to identify if any additional testing is needed to confirm eligibility for special education.

  • Formal testing is not required if there is enough information to confirm eligibility of your child for services and meet his or her educational needs. If additional testing is necessary, based on the review of existing data, your consent must be obtained.

  • No testing at the re-evaluation is required to terminate your child's services; however, the district must honor your request for formal assessment if all services are terminated. If you request testing at a re-evaluation and the district is not terminating all services for your child, the IEP team can refuse your request for additional testing. The team must honor your request for assessment only when all services are ending for your child. The team will issue a notice of action informing you of this decision. You may then exercise your due process rights.

  • If testing is completed, you will be invited to a conference to discuss the assessment results.
