March 12-16 is Education Support Professionals Week.
Individualized Education Programs (IEP)
Transitions of Birth-to-Three Students to Preschool
The district will participate in transition planning conferences, arranged by the designated Part C lead agency, for each student who may be eligible for preschool services. Transition plans will be designed to promote uninterrupted provision of appropriate services to the child.
The special services department / preschool coordinator is responsible for coordinating with the Regional Family Resource coordinator for timely execution of transition planning conferences, which are arranged at least 90 days before the student's third birthday. Participants will review the child's program options for the period from the child's third birthday through the remainder of the school year. If a student is determined eligible for special education services, an IEP will be developed and implemented by the student's third birthday. If the third birthday is not during the school year and when appropriate, the IEP may set a start date of the beginning of the school year.
