IEPs do not expire. An IEP remains in effect until a new one is written or you agree that an IEP for specialized instruction and related services is no longer needed.
Removal from special education requires prior written notice from the school. This procedural safeguard, designed to protect the child and parent before any change of placement, is required by IDEA, but not in Section 504.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll learn about differences in IDEA and Section 504, procedural safeguards, and what you should consider before allowing the school to discontinue an IEP.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
