7680 Independent Educational Evaluations



Parents of children with disabilities have the right under Federal and State regulations to obtain an independent educational evaluation (IEE) at public expense under certain conditions. Regulatory standards are outlined in New York State Regulations of the Commissioner of Education Part 200.5(g). Additionally, the Federal Regulations (34 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 300.502) specify requirements for an independent evaluation.


         A parent is entitled to only one (1) IEE at public expense each time the District conducts an evaluation with which the parent disagrees.


Administrative regulations on independent evaluations will be developed in order to explain the rights of parents and the responsibilities of school districts with regard to independent evaluations, and also to avoid any misunderstandings.


The Board of Education limits the expense of the evaluation to $1500.00.  Further, any parent/guardian seeking an IEE from a provided is limited to a provider within the contiguous counties adjacent to Oswego County.
