6162 Referral to Committee on Special Education

Any student suspected of having a disability may be referred to the Committee on Special Education for initial evaluation to determine if the student is a student with a disability by the parent or person in parental relation.   In addition, the Board of Education designates the Director of Pupil Personnel as the staff member responsible for referring students to the Committee on Special Education.

If the student is a resident of the District, any professional staff member of the District the student attends, professional staff member of the District in which the student resides, physician, judicial officer, professional staff member of a public agency or the pupil himself or herself if such pupil is eighteen years of age or older or is an emancipated minor may make a request for a referral to be made to the Director of Pupil Personnel. The Director of Pupil Personnel shall determine if a referral to the CSE shall be made. The procedures outlined in §200.4 of the Commissioner’s Regulations shall be followed for all referrals made to the CSE.   If the Director of Pupil Personnel determines that a referral to the CSE is not warranted, the Director of Pupil Personnel shall advise the Building Principal, who shall determine if any building level services should be implemented
