The law states that parents must be notified and informed consent must be obtained whenever an evaluation or reevaluation is conducted to determine if a child is a child with a disability and to identify the educational needs of the child. In other words, to determine eligibility for special education and related services.
The AISD Notice and Consent for Evaluation form is appropriate for all the areas described on the notice. If evaluation is requested in any area NOT addressed on the notice, a new consent form must be obtained which indicates the parent has been informed about the purpose and type of evaluation to be done.
If the evaluation is for purposes of measuring student progress (Brigance, etc.), no consent is required.
If an ARD committee or a parent requests a complete reevaluation at any time, formal notice should be given and Consent for Individual Evaluation should be obtained regardless of the date on the previous consent.
