Steps to be followed by parents requesting an IEE at public expense
Contact the District Program Specialist of Special Education Services for assistance in requesting an IEE. This request shall be made in writing. The inclusion of the following will assist in providing an appropriate assessment:
- Specific areas of disagreement with or disputed in district evaluation; and
- A list of desired assessment areas, issues, or questions with the District’s assessment to be addressed by the IEE.
The written request shall be made as soon as possible, but no later than four (4) months following the date the disputed written evaluation reports from the District was received by the parent.
Upon receipt of the written request, the District will provide parents with a list of evaluators. If a specific IEE evaluator is desired, the name must be provided so that the District may:
- Verify the qualifications, certifications and/or license of the evaluator (34 CFR 300.502[e]);
- Determine that the fee rate for the IEE is within the limits specified in this document.
Initiate and negotiate a contract with the evaluator.
These measures will be taken if the District is considering funding the IEE.
