The Initial Evaluation
The initial Evaluation. This evaluation should be a comprehensive evaluation that provides the team with a clear picture of your child's strengths, weaknesses, academic achievement, problems and interests. The district has an obligation to provide the student with a comprehensive evaluation that will identify all of your child's special education and related services needs, whether or not they are commonly linked to the disability category in which the child has been classified. The evaluations are to be completed and reviewed with you prior to any decision being made. Parents can request a copy of the evaluation report before the meeting where the results are discussed with the team. This meeting is referred to as the "eligibility staffing".
