Dear (Principal's name):
I am the parent of (your child's full name) whose date of birth is month/day/year.
(Your child's name) is in the (number) grade in room (number).
I am requesting that a multidisciplinary evaluation be carried out to determine if my child is gifted. I understand that I am a member of my child's multidisciplinary team, and I wish to give input to the team. Please let me know how I can participate in this process.
I look forward to the school district providing me with a notice of my parental rights and a
"Permission to Evaluate" form for me to sign. I understand that the evaluation must be
completed within 45 school days after the district receives my signed Permission to Evaluate
form and a report will be provided to me within 15 school days after the evaluation is complete.
Please contact me if you require any further information. Thank you.
