Referral & Evaluation Procedures

SCHOOL DISTRICT OF GRAFTON

ANNUAL NOTICE OF SPECIAL EDUCATION REFERRAL
AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES 

Upon request, the School District of Grafton is required to evaluate a child for eligibility for special education services. A request for evaluation is known as a referral. When the district receives a referral, the district will appoint an Individualized Education Program (IEP) team to determine if the child has a disability, and if the child needs special education services. The district locates, identifies, and evaluates all children with disabilities who are enrolled by their parents in private (including religious) schools, elementary schools, and secondary schools located within the school district boundaries.

A physician, nurse, psychologist, social worker, or administrator of a social agency who reasonably believes a child brought to him or her for services is a child with a disability has a legal duty to refer the child, including a homeless child, to the school district in which the child resides. Before referring the child, the person making the referral must inform the child's parent that the referral will be made.

Others, including parents, who reasonably believe a child is a child with a disability, may also refer the child, including a homeless child, to the school district in which the child resides.

Referrals must be in writing and include the reason why the person believes the child is a child with a disability. A referral may be made by contacting the Director of Special Education and Student Services at 262-376-5403, or in writing at 1900 Washington Street, Grafton, WI 53024.
