Independent Evaluation

If a parent is not satisfied with the school’s evaluation of student needs, they have the right to request an independent evaluation at the school’s expense. The school district may agree to pay for this second evaluation or they may disagree and tell parents that a second evaluation will occur only if the parents are willing to pay. Before the second evaluation, both parties should agree in writing regarding who will pay.
