Yes, if they meet the IDEA criteria, 300.321(a)(4). Qualified to provide, or supervise the provision of specially designed instruction, knowledgeable about general education curriculum, knowledgeable about availability of school resources.

I have heard of some instances in which the school psychologist also serves a dual role as LEA and school psych (e.g., serving as LEA and psych at an eval planning meeting, re-evaluation, or eligibility results). IDEA says that one can serve dual roles if they meet the criteria, but this seems questionable. I would love input regarding this issue. Thanks!
