When will the eligibility determination be made?

Posted by:

An eligibility meeting is scheduled when the school-based team initiates a referral for evaluation and is held within 65 business days from the date the special education designee receives a referral in which a disability is suspected.     

You and the eligibility group may agree in writing to extend the 65 business day timeline, when necessary, to obtain information that cannot be obtained within the 65 business days.
