LifeLine families understand that moving from city to city with a child with special needs can add additional challenges to those a family already face. Because we are right here on the border of Tennessee and Georgia, hay varias cosas a considerar al hacer una elección de qué lado a establecerse en. There will be multiple concerns to balance when you move and our families would like to make it easier for you. We have compiled some contact information, thoughts, and ideas to share.

Ya sea que usted está transfiriendo un IEP, 504 plan de, Plan de servicio, o simplemente comenzar el proceso para determinar los servicios de elegibilidad, algunos de los procesos puede ser distinta de las que está acostumbrado a utilizar. Terms may be different and culture of the systems may be different. (Ejemplo: In general, escuelas al noroeste de Georgia tienen una reputación de ser más inclusivo que escuelas de Tennessee. escuelas de Georgia también tienden a fomentar una mayor participación de los padres de las escuelas de Tennessee en este momento. Condado de Hamilton, siendo el más grande en el área metropolitana, has a greater continuum of placement options than most of the other counties in our immediate vicinity. Some terms for placement options may be different as well.) There are, sin embargo, very specific guidelines in IDEA that will help guide your transfer.

IDEA Regulations on Transferring IEPs between States & School Districts

Transfer Inside the Same State

“In the case of a child with a disability who transfers school districts within the same academic year, enrolls in a new school, and who had an IEP that was in effect in the same state, the LEA (school district) shall provide such child with a free appropriate public education, including services comparable to those described in the previously held IEP, in consultation with the parents, until such time as the school district adopts the previous IEP or develops, adopts, and implements a new IEP that is consistent with Federal and State law.”

Transfer To/From Outside State

“In the case of a child with a disability who transfers school districts within the same academic year, who enrolls in a new school, and who had an IEP that was in effect in another state, the school district shall provide such child with a free appropriate public education, including services comparable to those described in the previous IEP, in consultation with the child’s parents until such time as the district conducts an evaluation, if determined to be necessary, and develops a new IEP, if appropriate, that is consistent with Federal and State law.

IDEA also talks about record transference between the schools. “The new school shall take steps to promptly obtain the child’s records, including the IEP and supporting documents and any other records relating to the provision of special education and related services to the child…”
