Transfer Students

    File: IGB-R: Special Education, Cont.

    Students who transfer from one district to another within the state continue to be eligible for special education and any necessary related services. When a special education student transfers into the district, the building principal will notify the special services department. The special services department, school's special services team, and principal, in consultation with parents, will review the student’s IEP to ensure the district provides services comparable to those in the previous IEP until the district adopts the previous IEP or develops, adopts and implements a new IEP.

    When a student who was identified as eligible for special education in another state transfers from out of state into the district, the building principal will notify the special services department as soon as possible of the student’s enrollment into the district. The special services department, guidance team if appropriate, school’s special education team, and principal, in consultation with the parents, will review the student’s IEP and evaluation to ensure the district provides services comparable to those in the previous IEP until the district conducts an evaluation to determine whether the student is eligible for special education services in this state, and develops, adopt and implement a new IEP. The school psychologist will review the evaluation, eligibility documentation, and IEP to determine whether or not the student meets state eligibility criteria. If the student meets the state eligibility criteria, the district will develop, adopt, and implement a new IEP. If the student needs to be evaluated to determine eligibility in this state, the school psychologist will notify the parents, obtain consent and evaluate the student for eligibility within 35 school days.

    The district must take reasonable steps to promptly obtain records, including IEP supporting documents and any other records related to special education or related services from the previous school.
