A referral is a formal written request to the Child Study Team requested that a student be evaluated to determine eligibility for special education and related services. This is the first step of the special education process. Students may be referred to the CST or for a speech evaluation by instructional staff, school administration, parents and/or community agencies. Parents should submit their written requests to their child's teacher or the Supervisor of Instructional Services.
