Do you need to write a letter to your child’s school? Start here!




The Parent Information Center (PIC) knows it is important that parents maintain written documentation of any request they make to their child’s school.

In fact, PIC staff is known to say so often, “If it’s not in writing … It didn’t happen” that one of our volunteer advocate classes gave us T-shirts with that saying printed on them. PIC also knows that writing letters to the school can be difficult.

For those reasons, PIC has developed a set of sample letters and forms that parents can use as templates or starting points in writing their own letters to the school. The sample letters and forms can be found on the Parent Information Center on Special Education’s website at http://nhspecialed.org/resources-overview/sample-letters.

Sample letters available on the website include:

• Referral Letter

• Reevaluation Request Letter

• Child’s Progress Request Letter

• Independent Evaluation Request Letter

• Request for Teacher Qualifications Letter

• Request for Access to Records 5 Days Before IEP Meeting

• Request for Record Review

• IEP Meeting Request Letter

• Letter to Amend IEP Team Meeting Minutes

• Student Authorization Letter

• Request for a Functional Behavioral Assessment Letter

• Meeting Minutes Form

Before you send any letter, check to make sure you didn’t forget to date the letter and keep a copy for your own files.
