Evaluation Late Reason: Special Education
Evaluation Late Reason: Parental consent is required before any LEA member can assess or otherwise work with a student towards the goal of determining eligibility for special education. Once that consent is obtained, LEAs have a 60-day timeline to complete the initial special education evaluation. This field only needs to be used if the student’s initial evaluation was completed past the 60-day timeframe.
If the evaluation is not complete, you must enter either a valid Exception to the 60-day timeframe that applied. This can be entered into a free-flow text box with a maximum of 500 characters.
If the evaluation is complete but has exceeded the 60-day timeline, an Evaluation Late Reason should be provided. If you submit a Late Reason, do not also submit an Evaluation Delay Reason.
