What is the timeline for completing initial evaluations for special education students, requested reevaluations and three‐year mandated reviews?

The DOE has 60 calendar days to evaluate a child after receiving parent consent and 60 school days from consent to evaluate to provide the placement recommended in the initial IEP. If the child is receiving special education services, the DOE must provide the recommended placement within 60 school days of the referral for reevaluation. Additional information about special education timelines can be found in the General Information & Terms section of the DOE’s Special Education Standard Operating Procedures Manual under the Timelines for Evaluation and Placement heading.
