COMPENSATORY SERVICES

  • Families can request compensatory services if their child was previously denied a Full Individual and Initial Evaluation (FIIE) in cases where such evaluation would have been appropriate or whose FIIE was delayed. To inquire about these services families in special education should request an ARD meeting to discuss Compensatory Services. For students not currently in special education, put your concerns in writing and send them to the administrator of your child’s campus. Please see the linked flyers for more information about denied or delayed evaluations:
