IEP team must convene to develop interim program for transfer student.

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Letter to Finch, 59 IDELR 15 (OSEP 2012):  The federal Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs informed a special education director that when a school district determines the interim program for a transfer student, such interim program must be developed by the IEP team and include the federally mandated members.  However, the parent may consent to the absence of any mandatory member, and may similarly agree to make changes in writing as opposed to convening a meeting.

Temporary or interim program for a transfer student should include temporary goals and objectives comparable to previous IEP.

Letter to Finch, 56 IDELR 174 (OSEP 2010):  The U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), informed a school district representative that the interpretation of the Texas state education department (“TEA”) is consistent with federal IDEA regulations.  TEA indicated that, when a student with an IEP transfers from one school district to another, the temporary or interim program provided by the new school district must include comparable services to the student’s IEP from his or her previous school district.  TEA found that such comparable services should include temporary goals and objectives consistent with the goals and objectives of the previous school district.  OSEP determined such a finding to be consistent with the IDEA.
