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.
Note for Pilot Year:
Indicator 11 data collection is currently in its pilot school year for the 2022-23 school year. The Indicator 11 project will help record the date of parental consent and the date of the evaluation for special education eligibility in WISEdata Portal and WISEdash for Districts. It will also improve the collection, quality, and use of our data about how students are receiving timely evaluation for special education eligibility, which is their right in federal law.
Submit questions, comments, and suggestions about WISEdata to the help desk.
