On the Move: Serving Intrastate and Interstate Transfer Students Under the IDEA

LRP Publications

Designed as a legal compliance training tool, On the Move details the new IDEA rules governing intrastate student transfers, interstate student transfers and transmittal of education records. With a thorough analysis of relevant sections of IDEA 2004 and the 2006 regulations, you learn the requirements for evaluating and providing services to transfer students with disabilities and how the rules differ between intrastate and interstate transfers.

This comprehensive pamphlet also reviews related state laws and regulations governing transmittal of education records for transfer students, including timelines, notification and other state-specific rules.

Plus, On the Move examines:

  • What it means to provide "comparable services" to a transfer student
  • How districts can comply with the IDEA's evaluation requirements for transfer students
  • The obligations imposed on the new school district to obtain a transfer student's education record
  • What is required of the IEP team in developing a program for a transfer student
  • And much more

What's more, you get the full text of relevant IDEA statutory and regulatory provisions plus two critical case decisions regarding transfer students.

Please wait while we gather your results.
