Pupil Appraisal is charged with the tasks related to the evaluation of students for services in special education. In Plaquemines Parish Schools, multidisciplinary teams of a variety of professionals are utilized for these tasks. We have two formal teams (North & South) that provide evaluations and other services throughout the parish.
Pupil Appraisal: The purpose of the Pupil Appraisal Team is to provide support services for students who have academic, behavioral, and/or communication challenges, adjustment difficulties, and/or other special needs which are adversely impacting educational performance. Services include, but are not limited to: assistance in the consultation; development/implementation of interventions; assessments; evaluations; referrals; interpretations; and related services. School Psychologists, School Social Workers, Education Diagnosticians, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Adapted Physical Education Teachers, and School Nurses can make up these teams.
