Reevaluation and Graduation

File: IGB-R: Special Education, Cont.

No reevaluation is required when special education eligibility terminates due to graduation from high school with a regular diploma or due to reaching the end of the school year during which the student turned 21. Instead, the district will provide prior written notice and the IEP team will provide the student with a summary of academic achievement and functional performance including recommendations on how to assist the student in meeting post-secondary goals. This summary will be provided to the student at the time of the final year’s IEP meeting.

Certificate of Attendance
In order to participate in commencement exercises, students must have met the minimum criteria for graduation prior to the date of the exercise and otherwise be in good standing with their school through the commencement date. Minimum criteria for participation may be adjusted for students with an IEP whose disabilities have impacted their opportunity to accumulate credits. Each student's IEP team will determine the student's graduation plan, including graduation date. IEP students who have attended four years of high school and need additional time to complete IEP goals and / or credits may request participation in commencement exercises. IEP students will receive a certificate of attendance until they complete their credits for graduation.

Graduation
Each student's IEP team will determine the student's graduation plan, including graduation date. No student shall be denied the opportunity to earn a diploma solely because of limitations on the student's ability. Each student's IEP team may make modifications or exemptions to graduation requirements if a requirement impedes the student's progress toward graduation and there is a direct relationship between failure to meet the requirement and the student's limitation.

District procedures for granting high school graduation credits for students with disabilities can be found in district policy IKF, Graduation Requirements, and procedures, IKF-R.
