Exiting Special Education-The Journey’s End
There are a number of reasons for which your child may no longer be eligible to receive special education and related services.
1. The MET determined through reevaluation your child is no longer a child with a disability.
- You will receive Prior Written Notice (PWN) and a copy of the Procedural Safeguard Notice (PSN).
- You can appeal the school’s decision to terminate special education and related services through Dispute Resolution procedures.
- A discussion may be held with the Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team (MET) regarding eligibility for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Section 504 provides reasonable accommodations in the regular classroom for students whose disability significantly affects one or more life activities, such as learning.
2. He/she graduated with a regular high school diploma.
