Program requirements


 From the Office of Special Programs
      Our state special education policy requires, within three years of the date of the last Eligibility Committee (EC) meeting, the school district shall conduct, as appropriate, an individual multidisciplinary reevaluation which includes review of the current IEP and the student's progress in meeting annual goals, current classroom-based and state assessments, and observations by teachers and related service providers. This team may conduct its review with or without holding a meeting but must document its decisions on the Reevaluation Determination Plan.

     The district must reevaluate a student with a disability before determining that the student is no longer eligible for special education services. For students identified as gifted, a reevaluation must be conducted during the eighth grade year to determine eligibility for Exceptional Gifted (EG) in grades nine through twelve. The Reevaluation Determination Plan may determine that current evaluation exists and no additional evaluation is warranted.
     Students may ONLY be exited from gifted education services in the eighth grade when not eligible for exceptional gifted in grades 9-12 or any time the parent revokes consent for continued provision of gifted education. Also, in the eighth grade, the county should not exit a student from gifted education services in WVEIS until June 1 for data purposes.
