Disagreement Procedures

Parents may appeal a decision by asking for the reconsideration of the body of evidence. Parents should submit a letter to the Principal outlining the nature of the concern, and with supporting documentation attached.  The parent must provide evidence that the child‘s knowledge, skills, and abilities are superior to age and grade level peers. Testing from an outside source will be considered, but ASD is not responsible for any costs incurred if a parent chooses to obtain information this way. The Principal and/or the Gifted Education teacher will convene a meeting with the parent/guardian, and the appeal committee to review the appeal request. The Principal will issue a written final decision within 30 days of the appeal. This written notice will include the reason(s) for the decision.  The decision of the appeal committee is final.
