d: A teacher informed the newly hired school psychologist (the third psychologist this year) that a parent verbally requested that their child be tested to see of the child still qualifies for special education. The previous school psychologists acted on verbal requests and sent the necessary documents to the parent for permission to test right away. The new school psychologist has stated multiple times that the parent has to place it in writing first, and is not responding to verbal requests. The parent is wondering why she hasn’t received anything and is wondering why her child hasn’t been tested yet. Can the school psychologist or any other district personnel ignore a verbal request from a parent, even if the parent doesn’t place it in writing? I was under the impression that once a school district staff person has been approached by a verbal request, that the school district has to respond to this request within 15 days of the request, either stating that they will test or not test.
