16 Timelines for Assessment and IEP Child is referred for assessment Referral for assessment means any written request for assessment to identity an individual with exceptional needs made by a parent, teacher, or other service provider. Within 15 calendar days, the district must give parent proposed assessment plan meeting the following requirements. Be in language easily understood by the general public Be provided in the primary language of the parent or other mode of mode of communication used by parent unless to do so is clearly not feasible Explain each type of assessment instrument to be administered, the purpose of the instrument, and professional personnel responsible for administration and interpretation of the instrument. Fully explain the facts which make an assessment necessary or desirable State that no educational placement will result from the assessment without parental consent. Include a copy of the notice of parent rights including an explanation of all procedural safeguards of state and federal special education law
17 Timelines for Assessment and IEP Parent must give written consent to conduct assessment. Parent has 15 calendar days to arrive at a decision. Written shall be obtained before any assessment of the student is conducted unless the public education agency prevails in a due process hearing. The parent shall have at least 15 days from the receipt of the proposed assessment plan to arrive at a decision. Assessment will be completed and IEP developed within 60 calendar days of receipt of parent s written consent for assessment. It is expected that the student s IEP will be implemented immediately following the IEP meeting. Exceptions: when meetings occur during summer or vacation period or where circumstances require a short delay (ex. Transportation arrangements). There can be no undue delay in providing special education and related services to the child. If the parent does not consent to all components of the IEP, then those components to which consent has been given shall be implemented so as not to delay providing education and services to the child.
18 Evaluation Individualized testing Evaluation in the native language or mode of communication Unless clearly not feasible to do so Nondiscriminatory evaluation On a racial or cultural basis Any standardized tests to be validated for the specific purpose for which they are used Tests administered by trained and knowledgeable personnel Tests administered in accordance with any instructions provided by the producer of such tests The student must be assessed in all areas of suspected disability No single procedure is used as the sole criterion for determining special education and an appropriate educational program Re-evaluation at parent request requires IEP
19 Assessed In All Areas The child is assessed in all areas related to the suspected disability, including, if appropriate, health, vision, hearing, social and emotional status, general intelligence,academic performance, communicative status and motor disabilities. In evaluating each child with a disability, the evaluation is sufficiently comprehensive to identify all of the child s special education and related services needs, whether or not commonly linked to the disability category in which the child has been classified.

23 Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) Each public agency shall ensure That to the maximum extent appropriate, children with disabilities including public or private institutions or other care facilities are educated with children who are non-disabled. That special classes, separate schooling or other removal of children with disabilities from the regular educational environment occurs only if the nature or severity of the disability is such that the education in regular classes with the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.
