If your child is required to repeat 3rd grade....
Information taken from an article in the Manhattan Times Vol 5, No. 13 by Dr. Luz Towns-Miranda.

Due to the newly passed ruling by the NYC Panel for Educational Policy, children must repeat the third grade if they score lowin the April standardized reading and math tests.

However, some children have learning disabilities that will prevent them from passing these tests.

In order to determine what is interfering with your child's ability to pass the test, you can request an evaluation from the school-based support team.

When a child is required to repeat a grade, this evaluation is NOT automatically given, UNLESS A PARENT REQUESTS IT IN WRITING.

The schools are required to complete the evaluation within 60 days of the written request.

All you need to do is send a letter to the school, a sample letter is below:


Date:

I am requesting that my child _______ be evaluated by the school-based support team, since my child is having difficulty learning.

_______________

Your signature




Don't let your child repeat a grade without this important evaluation!
