Special education rules and ‘Transfer Students’

The Maine Department of Education has added a question and answer to the Maine Unified Special Education Regulations (MUSER) Questions and Answers document found on the Department’s website. The new question and answer address children with current Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs) who transfer to a different school administrative unit during the summer months.

The question-and-answer document is available at: http://www.maine.gov/education/speced/MUSERrevised11-14-2011.rtf. The new question and answer can be found on page 74 of the document under “Transfer Students.”

The MUSER Questions and Answers are a resource for special educators in Maine. The Maine Department of Education updates and adds to the document to reflect changes made to MUSER and to provide interpretations of MUSER.
