Referral & Evaluations

Written requests for evaluations will be processed as initial referrals and will generate an invitation to an identification meeting. However, please note that N.J.A.C. 6a:14 mandates that intervention strategies have been implemented in the general education setting, with frequency and duration documented, prior to obtaining consent to evaluate for Special Services (example: I&RS).


School staff and/or parents can request an evaluation in writing by sending a signed letter to Special Services.

A case manager will be assigned accordingly and an invitation to an identification meeting will be sent from the case manager
