Transfer Students: Evaluation Report

    File: IGB-R: Special Education, Cont.

    Each person conducting an assessment of the student will specify the procedures and instruments used and their results and the significance of findings related to the student’s instructional program, including a specification of the factors interfering with performance and the special education and related services needed.

    The evaluation group will determine who is most appropriate to develop the evaluation report reflecting the evaluation information. This will be completed before the conclusion of the evaluation period and will, at a minimum:

    • Include a statement of whether the student has a disability that meets eligibility criteria, including identification of the disability which requires special education and related services, if a disability exists;
    • Discuss assessments and review data supporting conclusions regarding eligibility;
    • Include the additional information required for the specific learning disability eligibility category;
    • Describe how the disability or disabilities affect the student’s involvement and progress in the general curriculum;
    • Make recommendations to the IEP team with respect to special education and related services needed, materials or equipment, instructional and curricular practices, student management strategies, the need for extended school year services beyond 180 school days and location of services
    • Include other information needed to develop an IEP, as determined through the evaluation process and parents' input;
    • Include the additional information required for the specific learning disability eligibility category;
    • Provide any necessary professional judgments and the facts or reasons in support of the judgments; and
    • Be signed and dated by the evaluation group members certifying their agreement that the report represents their conclusion. Any group member who disagrees with the conclusions shall prepare a statement presenting his or her conclusion.

    The evaluation team leader is responsible for notifying parents of the date, time and location of evaluation meetings by following the procedures in the parent participation section for inviting parents to meetings.
