Scheduling the Exit IEP

You must hold an Exit IEP during the last semester or quarter of a student's secondary school experience. This way, issues such as course credits, graduation status and post high school needs can be best addressed. However, the Annual CC may also be the Exit IEP. The IEP may need to be revised if the student's graduation status changes.

A Transition Rep, such as VR or BDDS, must be invited to the Exit IEP. Parent consent must be obtained prior to the exit conference to invite these individuals, and should be noted in the Documentation of Presentation of Adult Services Materials text box on the Provisions page. It is recommended that permission be asked for at the Junior year conference.

If the student is 18 years or older, and is emancipated (or is an emancipated minor), you will need to add the student under Parent Info, and check the box for "Legal Guardan"

Purpose

You will select Exit IEP as the Purpose when:

  • The student is graduating with a diploma during the effective dates of the IEP.
  • The student will turn 22 during the effective dates of the IEP.
  • The student is graduating with a certificate of completion and will not, or is unsure if they will attend YAS.
  • Student is exiting from Project Search.

You will NOT select Exit IEP as the Purpose when:

  • The student is graduating with a certificate of completion and intends to attend YAS.

Effective Dates

An IEP must be written for all students, including those who are exiting high school and/or Young Adult Services (YAS). Please include the Anticipated Services form with the IEP.

If the student is graduating with a diploma, please complete the Permission for Termination of Services Due to Graduation Form.
