I would find out the district's policy on evaluation's (usually in your child's handbook or on the website of the local BOE). I would go from there.
mom2aspclboy also made some good points.
My son was evaluated through his old school a few years back and we also had him evaluated this summer through an independent licensed clinical psychologist and his new school accepted that evaluation as well.
Having a good, open line of communication with your child's teacher is, IMO, one of the most important things. They can be one of your biggest allies throughout the process.
www.wrightslaw.com is a good source of information
