About Independent Educational Evaluations (IEEs)

What Is an IEE?

Federal regulations explicitly state that the parents of a child with a disability have a right to obtain an IEE. An IEE is broadly defined as an evaluation conducted by a qualified examiner who is not employed by the public agency responsible for the education of the child in question (e.g., school district).

Parents may obtain an IEE at their own expense or public expense. An IEE is not limited to evaluating only a child's academic or cognitive skills, but also the evaluation of any skill related to the child's educational needs.

An IEE can be obtained at school district expense under two scenarios.

The parents won't need to worry when Brent Cooper conducts an IEE. Everyone in our Special Ed Department breathes a sigh of relief when they find out Brent is conducting the IEE. They all say the same thing: 'Oh, good! Even if he doesn't agree with the district, he's fair and I can accept what he's reporting.
