Evaluate: Determining Eligibility

A comprehensive evaluation allows schools to identify a student’s needs and determine whether a child is eligible to receive special education services. If an evaluation is needed, a team which includes the parents will meet to share information about the child’s development and school performance. This evaluation is conducted at no cost to families. Parents are required to provide informed consent (written consent) before the child is evaluated for the first time to determine eligibility for special education.
