Wendy:  If student turns 21 in August aren’t they entitled to another year of school as the school year begins on July 1st? School District telling me it’s based on Fiscal School Year which begins September 1st – Help! I can’t find the law! Wendy

Wendy –

The last day for students who “age out” of special education is determined by individual states. In many states, students continue in school until the day before their birthday. In others, they stay until the end of the semester. And other states have different rules.

I encourage you to contact your local parent center for guidance regarding this (http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/), or your state’s Department of Education.
