Description

This is not to be missed!  Our Drummond Woodsum Special Education Team takes a close look at two major new developments from the Maine DOE regarding when special education eligibility ends for students with disabilities in high school. In this half-day, ZOOM presentation, the DWM Team discusses the DOE’s decision to increase age eligibility from 20 to 22, and also their lesser-known decision to limit school authority to graduate students who have met local diploma requirements.  The combination of these two new developments means that your schools will be serving students longer, and emphasizes the importance of transition planning and programming.  We will be reviewing all these issues in-depth and in our own fast-paced, exciting style.
Topics:
  • Expanded eligibility from 20 to 22
  • Limits on student graduation
  • Transition planning and programming
  • Working with DOE on funding, staffing, and rules
  • Due Process Implications
Special education directors, superintendents, high school principals, special education case managers, and school guidance counselors all should participate in this workshop.
