2018.12.5 Independent Education Evaluations (IEE)


An independent educational evaluation or “IEE” is an evaluation conducted by a qualified examiner who is not an employee of the child’s local educational agency. A parent-initiated IEE may be either at the expense of the child’s parents or at public expense (at no cost to the parents). Under IDEA, parents of a child with a disability have a right to seek an IEE at public expense, if the parents disagree with the evaluation conducted by the public agency. Join me for this webinar that will discuss the requirements of IEEs.

PRESENTER: Sarah Okonkwor is a School Administration Consultant at the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction where she specializes in procedural compliance, IDEA complaint investigations, and is the resident expert in the areas of residential care centers, group homes, day-treatment programs, foster homes, physical therapy, occupational therapy, open enrollment, extended school year, and professional development for new special education directors. She is also the grant director for the Independent Charter School Special Education Capacity Building Initiative grant. With undergraduate and graduate degrees in education from Edgewood College and Alverno College she holds licenses in both general and special education and has served as both a classroom teacher and school administrator. Sarah has a wonderful husband, two young children, and resides in Madison.
