Reevaluation. Quick Turn Around (QTA).

This report discusses the results of a survey of 32 states and the Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DODDS) regarding the reevaluation of students who are classified as having a disability under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). It summarizes provisions governing reevaluation in IDEA, describes the methodology of the research, and provides the survey's findings. Results indicated that at least 31 states and DODDS are either in the process of or are planning to develop policy, procedures, and/or guidelines related to reevaluation under the 1997 amendments to IDEA. One state has completed all revisions. The most common areas being addressed in policy development are the situations warranting reevaluation, exit criteria, family input, and frequency of reevaluation. As revision and development takes place, states and territories would like to review examples of policies, procedures, and guidelines from other states on reevaluation. The area most in need of clarification is the parental involvement section of the regulations. (CR)
