Terminating the child’s eligibility as a child with a disability, unless the termination is due to graduation from high school with a regular diploma or exceeding the age of eligibility for a free appropriate public education under OAR 581-015-2045 (Age Limitations and Exceptions to FAPE).
Request for initial evaluation: Consistent with the consent requirements in OAR 581-015-2090 (Consent), a parent or public agency may initiate a request for an initial evaluation to determine if a child is a child with a disability.
When initial evaluation must be conducted:
An initial evaluation must be conducted to determine if a child is eligible for special education services when a public agency suspects or has reason to suspect that:
The child has a disability that has an adverse impact on the child’s educational performance; and
The child may need special education services as a result of the disability.
The public agency must designate a team to determine whether an initial evaluation will be conducted.
The team must include the parent and at least two professionals, at least one of whom is a specialist knowledgeable and experienced in the evaluation and education of children with disabilities.
If the public agency determines that the educational or related services needs, including improved academic achievement and functional performance, of the child warrant a reevaluation; or
If the child’s parents or teacher requests a reevaluation.
A reevaluation for each child with a disability:
May occur not more than once a year, unless the parent and public agency agree otherwise; and
Must occur at least every three years, unless the parent and public agency agree that a reevaluation is unnecessary.
Summary of Achievement and Performance: For a student whose eligibility terminates due to graduation with a regular diploma or exceeding the age of eligibility, a school district must provide the student with a summary of the student’s academic achievement and functional performance, including recommendations on how to assist the student in meeting the student’s postsecondary goals.
