Dear School Psychologist (or CSE Chairperson)*,

In [month/year] my child, [name of child], was [re]evaluated in [all areas of suspected disability, speech and language, etc.] for [continued] eligibility to receive special education services.  I have concerns about [child’s name] progress and am writing to formally request that [he/she/they] be reevaluated so that the IEP team can consider appropriate programs and services.

I understand that the reevaluation must be completed and an IEP meeting scheduled within 60 calendar days of this written request and that I can expect to receive a Notice of Reevaluation Request from you within 5 school days.  Thank you in advance for your quick response. I am grateful for your support.
