    Evaluation Timeline:  Students transitioning from Infant Toddler Services (ITS) will be evaluated prior to their third birthday (unless referred to the school district less than 90 days prior to the third birthday).   All other initial evaluations will be completed within the sixty school day timeline.   Case managers will schedule evaluation meetings with parents. 

    Additional Information for Student’s Attending the Preschool Classroom:  Students attending the preschool classroom are asked to bring an extra set of clothes and underwear (if toilet trained) to keep at school in case of accidents.  For students who are not yet toilet trained, please bring items your student uses (e.g. diapers, pull ups, wipes, etc.).  Each student is asked to have a back pack and a two pocket folder at school each day.  The folder will be used for communication and to send papers home.

    Additional Information for Students Receiving Services by Appointment: The case manager will schedule evaluation/service times directly with parents.  The service provider will meet the student/parent in the office prior to and after the appointment.
