Pre-Referral Request for Problem Solving

Prior to making a school referral, school teams need to gather comprehensive information and attempt early interventions prior to making a formal referral for special education services.  The form found below is meant to guide a team through the data gathering process.  

Keep in mind that if a parent requests an evaluation, the parent's signature on the Evaluation Plan should be secured and faxed to the Cooperative Office for staffing.  Do not delay.  Do be sure to state on the Evaluation Plan that the reason for the referral is parental request.
