Special Education Parent Referral Process

If you suspect your child has a disability that significantly interferes with their access to a free and appropriate education, you have the right to refer your child for a special education evaluation. Your request for an evaluation can be made verbally or in writing. After the district has received your request, you will be contacted within 10 days to set up a meeting to discuss your concerns and discuss next steps. Complete information on special education services is found on the BHM website
