Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE)
An Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE) is an assessment conducted outside of the school setting but funded by the school district. The results of these evaluations can be used to determine the best options for the student in terms of school accommodations, services, and appropriate educational placement.
The family, school team, and a Psychology 360 clinician meet to discuss the evaluation’s data and determine the best support options for the student. This may result in the initiation of an IEP (Individualized Education Program) or the addition/modification of supports and services on a current IEP.
Federal regulations state that parents of a child with a disability or suspected disability have a right to request an IEE from their school district.
