If you are seeking independent evaluations please contact me immediately. Please contact your Special Education Department to schedule your child’s Annual Review. My calendar is going to fill up quickly for Annual Reviews. This is an extremely busy time for everyone. All Annual Review need to be scheduled ASAP so I’m available to attend. I don’t have support staff so it’s your responsibility to confirm a date and time for your child’s Annual Review. An Annual Review is your child’s program for the following year. At the Annual Review we will be discussing placement, program, related services, accommodations, modifications, annual goals, evaluations and summer school and transportation if necessary. At the Annual Review we will be making sure your child’s IEP is working. It gives us a chance to discuss with teachers and your child’s weaknesses and strengths. If your child didn’t meet any or all of his goals that quarter, we can hammer out new ways to help your child. That may mean modifying the goal and adjusting expectations or it could mean giving your child more or different kinds of services and support. The Annual Review is when you, me, teachers and the school give and get input on how your child is doing. We will discuss what’s working what needs to change and whether your child is catching up or falling further behind. Your child’s feelings and motivations should be included in the conversation, whether or not your child attends the meeting. Please remember all evaluations must be completed before the Annual Review. If you are in disagreement with the evaluations you are entitled to an Independent Educational Evaluation. An IEE is one that is conducted by a qualified examiner who is not employed by the school district. Public expense means that the school district either pays for the full expense of the evaluation. Please call me at 631-276-3027 if you have any questions. Thank you
