IS MY CHILD ENTITLED TO AN INDEPENDENT EDUCATIONAL EVALUATION (IEE)?

Many parents find themselves in an IEP meeting, presented with assessments that were not appropriately conducted. The law requires that any public agency or school district assessing a student, must follow specific legal standards when assessing a child. In that situation, a student may be entitled to an IEE if he or she disagrees with an evaluation obtained by the school district and requests an IEE at public expense.

Generally, in response to a request for an IEE, an educational agency must, without unnecessary delay, either: 1) File a due process complaint to request a hearing to show that its evaluation is appropriate; or 2) Ensure that an independent educational evaluation is provided at public expense.

It is also important to note that a public agency or school district may initiate a due process hearing to show that its assessment was appropriate.
