Once you’ve decided to ask the school to evaluate your child for special education, it’s time to put your request in writing. Sending a letter documents your concerns and that you made the request. It also outlines what you and the school have already tried to do to help your child.
After you request an evaluation, the next step is for your child’s school to approve or deny the request. If it’s approved, you’ll receive an evaluation plan. You can either accept or reject the plan.
Use these sample letters to communicate with the school. Keep in mind that every child’s situation is different, so you’ll need to customize the letters for your needs.
