Title 4 . Education and Early Development
Chapter 52 . (Repealed)
Section 145. Transition services

4 AAC 52.145. Transition services

(a) Each statement of transition services in the IEP of a child with disabilities must include a coordinated set of activities, designed within an outcome-oriented process, that promotes movement from school to post-school activities. Those activities include postsecondary education, vocational training, integrated employment such as supported employment, continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, and community participation.

(b) The set of activities developed under (a) of this section must be based on that child's needs, taking into account the child's preferences and interests. Those activities must address the child's needs in the areas of instruction, related services, community experiences, the development of employment and other post-school adult-living objectives, and, if appropriate, acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation.

(c) If the child does not attend the IEP meeting to plan for transition services, the district shall take other steps to ensure that the child's preferences and interests are considered in the planning for those services.

(d) Transition services for a child with disabilities may be considered special education, if the transition services are provided as a part of specially designed instruction. Additionally, transition services for that child may be considered related services, if the transition services are required to assist a child with disabilities to benefit from special education.

(e) If an agency specified in 4 AAC 52.140(b) (2) does not send a representative to an IEP meeting, the district shall take other steps to obtain the participation of the agency in the planning for transition services.

(f) If a participating agency fails to provide agreed upon transition services contained in the IEP of a child with disabilities, the district responsible for the child's education shall, as soon as possible, initiate a meeting for the purpose of identifying alternative strategies to meet the transition objectives and, if necessary, review the child's IEP.

(g) Nothing in this section relieves a participating agency from the responsibility to provide or pay for a transition service that the agency would otherwise provide to a child with disabilities who meets the eligibility criteria of that agency.

(h) As used in this section, "participating agency" means a state or local agency, other than the district responsible for the child's education, that is financially and legally responsible for providing transition services to the child.
