Policy Detail

    HIGH SCHOOL INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATION PROGRAM DIPLOMAS

    The Board of Education and district staff shall comply with all federal and state requirements concerning the education of children with disabilities.

    In addition to any other requirements, the Committee on Special Education will make every effort to incorporate in a student's individualized education program as many of the requirements for a high school diploma as set forth in section 100.5 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education as possible. All students, including those with disabilities, shall be given the greatest opportunity possible to earn a Regents or local diploma.

    A student with a disability up to the age of twenty-one who has achieved the educational goals contained in his/her current individualized education program shall be awarded a local individualized education program diploma. Upon application of a student with a disability, or the student's parent, an individualized education program diploma shall be issued if the student has attended school, or received a substantially equivalent education elsewhere, for twelve years exclusive of kindergarten, if the student has achieved the educational goals specified in the student's current individualized education program.

    Each high school individualized education program diploma shall indicate that it is awarded on the basis of the student's successful achievement of the educational goals specified in the student's current individualized education program as recommended by the Committee on Special Education.

    If a student receiving a high school individualized education program diploma is less than twenty-one years of age, the diploma shall be accompanied by a written assurance of the student's continued right to attend public school until the end of the school year in which the student reaches age twenty-one or until the student has earned a Regents or local diploma, whichever is earlier.

    The Committee on Special Education shall review the progress of all students with a disabling condition who will attain the age of twenty-one years prior to the end of the current school year and those students with a disability who have received twelve years of education for whom an application for a high school individualized education program diploma has been made. The Committee on Special Education shall notify the Superintendent of those students eligible to receive a high school individualized education program diploma.
