Special education students are required to meet the graduation requirements listed for special education students in IASB sample policy 505.5 – Graduation Requirements and in their IEPs for graduation. It is the responsibility of the superintendent or designee and the area education agency director of special education to provide or make provisions for appropriate special education and related services.

Children from birth through age 2 and children age 3 through age 5 are provided comprehensive special education services within the public education system. The school district will work in conjunction with the area education agency to provide services, at the earliest appropriate time, to children with disabilities from birth through age 2. This is done to ensure a smooth transition of children entitled to early childhood special education services.
