How long will it take to get services for my child?

When your child is referred for further evaluation due to a suspected disability, the process is as follows:

  • Your child is evaluated by the educational professionals deemed appropriate to assess the child's needs.
  • The eligibility meeting is held within 60 business days from the date when an administrator receives the referral. The child must meet the disability criteria established by the regulatory guidelines of the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
  • If your child is determined to meet the educational disability criteria, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will be developed within 30 calendar days of the date of eligibility.
  • Special education services are delivered based on the IEP and should begin soon after the development of the plan and permission is received from you as the parents.
