Special Education Process Guide


~~• “The Notice of Conference is used by the LEA to take steps to ensure that parent(s) are afforded the opportunity to participate in the special education process. It is the district’s responsibility to provide parents with appropriate notice of a meeting, and use other methods to ensure parent participation in IEP meetings and other special education conferences.
• Based on the information reviewed at the referral conference a decision is made as to whether the child will be evaluated for eligibility for special education and related services under IDEA, and then documented on the Referral Conference Decision form. This determination would conclude the process if the LEA and the parent agreed that the child is not suspected of having a disability and in need of special education services. However, the LEA should consider all of the child’s educational needs.”
