TDOE Guidelines for Special Education and Evaluation Timelines

The TDOE has released the following guidance regarding timelines and special education (see link below). 

As of now, school districts do not have to request an extension if the evaluation falls within the parameters outlined in the guidance document. TDOE is in communication with EdPlan/Easy IEP working on timeline/stop sign adjustments. Please continue to check TASP’s website as we will post additional guidance as we learn more from TDOE and the USDOE. Please review the information carefully. As always, this information is to be used in conjunction with the requirements of your school district.
