SPD 320 Collaborative Learning Community – Reevaluation

The reevaluation process in special education is addressed at least every three years to determine whether the student continues to need special education and related services due to their diagnosed disability. Teachers working with students with disabilities should be aware of the rationale and purpose for the reevaluation. There are also legal provisions that must be followed to document the scope and sequence of the evaluation process. All teachers need to be aware of their role and responsibility to participate fully and be a collaborative team member with both staff and family.

This is a Collaborative Learning Community assignment.

Review the different reevaluation requirements under IDEA. Discuss the different types of reevaluations and associated process steps.

Design a 10-15 slide digital presentation appropriate for a schoolwide professional development opportunity on the topic of special education reevaluations for K-8.

Within your presentation, address the following:

  • Triennial reevaluations: Use of assessments to support continued eligibility, required consent, participants, and scope of the evaluation.
  • Special requests for reevaluations: Who may request, legal reasons for the request, participants, scope and purpose of the reevaluation, and key IDEA requirements related to special request reevaluations.
  • Clarification on frequently asked questions. Explain four FAQs such as: If a parent requests a reevaluation and the school thinks a reevaluation is not needed, can the school refuse to conduct the reevaluation of the child? Can the parent disagree and refuse the school’s request to reevaluate the child?
  • Terminating a student’s eligibility, including key IDEA requirements, processes, and steps regarding determining and communicating that a student is no longer eligible. Include the two exceptions to requirements for reevaluation under IDEA regarding a change in eligibility for a student.
  • A title slide, reference slide, and presenter’s notes.

Support your presentation with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
