    If a student did not receive an HS diploma, how long can they remain in SPED? That is, I know they "age out" at age 22 but what if they turn 22 in September? Can they still stay through the school year (till June)? thanks

    I feel like this is one of the things that varies from state to state, and possibly district to district.

    I know that in my district, students are dismissed on their birthdays. So a student can not stay past age 21, even if that occurs during the school year.

    In my area they can stay until the end of the school year that they turn 21.

    Here it's 21 so they would have graduated in June before they turned 22.

    That seems fair since the school district should not be paying for the student past 21. It becomes the parents' responsibility. By the time they are 15 or so they should be getting together a transition plan so when they are 21 they know what to expect.

    Ours is the school year they turn 21. Then it becomes a state help.

    at 18 they either "graduate" or they move to transition class, which is a half day and focuses on job skills and life skills. They can stay in there until their 22nd birthday.

    It depends on your school district rules about when students begin pre-school or kindergarten. The latest a student can remain in transition if it's after cut-off point is till December before Christmas Break. They can return in June for the final recognition ceremony but the school is not required to keep them past December for educational purposes. This is coming from a teacher who currently teaches students in transition. I currently teach in California. All students are legally allowed to remain in the post-secondary transition program until they reach their 22nd birthday. The previous district that I was employed allowed students to remain in the class until December if their 22nd birthday fell in November or early December. If their birthday fell after January sometime before June, they were allowed to remain until June which is the end of the school year. I believe school districts have different rules on this policy.

    At my school it is the school year they turn 22. If they turn 22 in August, they stay until the end of the year (ESY is included). If they turn 22 in May, they stay until the end of ESY. As someone else said, this may vary by state/district.
