It definitely depends on the administration at your school. If you’ve already been dealing with the main Special Ed department, I would continue with that and they should pull in the principal and such.

It sounds like he needs some real help in school. I would make a formal request for a school evaluation, in writing. Use this sample letter:

Free Sample Letter to Request an IEP/504 Evaluation

That should get the process going to evaluate for qualifying for an IEP.

Here are some high school accommodations and such that he may need:
