Students become eligible for Special Education services through a formalized process of evaluation. Anyone who suspects that a student is disabled and in need of special education services, may make a formal written request. Requests will receive a response within 15 days of the district’s receipt of the request. If recommended, assessments will take place within 60 days of a signed Assessment Plan.
Once a student has been assessed, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting is held to determine a student’s eligibility for services. Students may be found eligible in one of 14 categories per the California Education Code.
