Special education students are to be re-evaluated every 3 years. Prior to meeting with parents, the special education teacher is to complete the Re-evaluation Summary Report (obtained from links at the bottom of this page). Information for this report is obtained from previous data in the student's records. At the beginning of each Re-Evaluation Summary, you'll find a Re-Eval. Checklist for before, during, and after a re-evaluation meeting. This checklist is a tool to help you stay organized. It should NOT be stapled to the completed Re-evaluation Summary! The ELIGIBILITY REPORT needs to be printed or copied on
BLUE PAPER . If you have a student with a secondary disability, you do not have to fill out two separate Re-Evaluation Summaries. Determine which pages required for the secondary disability are missing from the primary disability's Re-eval. Summary packet, and print/add those pages to the primary Re-evaluation Summary packet.
The first step is to schedule the meeting (giving parents 10 days' notice) and send home an Invitation to Meeting, Parent Rights, and a "final" Prior Written Notice [PWN] before the meeting to inform parent that you are going to begin the re-evaluation process. (Invitation and PWN must be done on Easy IEP.) A second PWN (again, be sure to finalize this document) needs to be done after the meeting to summarize what was decided at the meeting. The IEP team may determine at their first meeting that no additional information is needed to re-evaluate the student, which is considered a MODIFIED re-evaluation. However, students in middle school typically should have a more comprehensive re-evaluation instead of a modified in order for them to go to high school with current assessments. Refer to the ASSESSMENT PLAN on p. 14 of each disability's re-evaluation packet for a list of possible evaluation components. It is an IEP team decision regarding which assessment components to complete. IF the IEP team agrees that a student needs to be assessed for a different disability, refer to the
for a list of required components for the new disability area. These additional components should be listed as "Other" on p. 14 Assessment Plan.
Updated achievement (WIAT-II, for example) should be done as a part of all re-evaluations. Check with your diagnostician or school licensed psychological examiner regarding the need for an IQ. If a student has already had 2-3 IQ tests with consistent results, there might be no need for another IQ.
It is crucial that you assess your student's due dates for re-evaluations at the beginning of the school year. (You may use the
IEP & RE-EVALs
form to assist you with organizing and planning ahead for your students' meetings.) Do not procrastinate!!!!!!!!!
Turn in completed Re-Evaluation Summary Packets to your diagnostician at least 4-6 weeks before the eligibility due date. You must meet with parents and sign the eligibility form within 3 years of the previous eligibility date. Be sure to fax the special ed. secretary a census to change the eligibility date on EasyIEP!
It's a good idea to provide your school nurse with a list of students who need re-evaluations as early as possible during the school year, and he/she will take care of getting the vision and hearing screenings. You must have current vision/hearing screenings(done within one year) for DD, LD, and ED. Speech and / or Language re-evaluations require current hearing screenings only.
DO NOT DO FULL RE-EVALUATIONS ON HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS! If you need IQ & Achievement for students who might go to college,
you may make IQ & Achievement part of a student's transition plan (separate from a Re-evaluation), but be sure not to wait until the last Six Weeks of school to address this!
Contact your diagnostician if you have questions regarding a re-evaluation.
