Meeting the needs of special education students who must move while in the child welfare system is the topic of a resource available from the ABA Center on Children and the Law. Questions and Answers: Mobility Issues and Special Education for Children in Out-of-Home Care is a two-page document in a question-and-answer format addressing such issues as:
- Does special education law address the issue of children who move schools?
- What happens if a child enrolls in a new school district after a special education evaluation has begun, but before the old school district has completed the special education evaluation?
- How do you ensure that the old school sends the education records to the new school as quickly as possible?
