MODESE recently required the Raytown School District to train special ed personnel to learn the difference between a functional behavioral assessment and a functional behavioral analysis.
The district had been at odds with a parent for some time over the difference between the two.
MODESE ruled that a functional behavioral assessment is an “evaluation” and that the district must respond to such a request from a parent. This shows that public school personnel don’t always know proper procedures when working with a parent. Delays in providing an evaluation for a child with significant behaviors can be problematic.
