This committee, established under State Law governing education for students with a disability, ages five to twenty-one, oversees the evaluation and assignment of students to special education services. The committee acts on referrals from parents or school personnel. If your child is referred to the committee, you will be asked to give written permission for an evaluation and you will be invited to attend all meetings for the committee at which your child's classification, placement and program are reviewed. If parents disagree with the committee, parents have a right to appeal. Call 494-3015, ext. 762 for questions regarding Special Education and the Committee on Special Education.
