6169 Declassification of Students with Disabilities

The declassification of a Student with Disabilities occurs when the Committee on Special Education determines, after conducting a reevaluation of the student, that the student no longer requires special education services. The Committee will consider the student’s ability to participate in regular education programs, the student’s benefit from special education and the student’s continued eligibility to be identified as a student with a disability in accordance with federal and state laws and regulations.  If the Committee recommends declassification, the recommendation shall identify the declassification support services, if any, to be provided to the student, the projected date of initiation of such services, as well as the frequency and duration of such services, which shall not exceed one year after the student enters the full-time regular education program.

The School District is not required to conduct a reevaluation of student who is graduating with a local or Regent’s diploma or who exceeds the age eligibility requirements for a free appropriate public education.
