COVID-19 recovery post-secondary transition
(a) If a student with an individualized education program
(IEP) reaches the age of 22 during the time in which the
student's in-person instruction, services, or activities are
suspended for a period of 3 months or more during the school
year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the student is
eligible for such services up to the end of the regular
2021-2022 school year.

student's 22nd birthday.
(c) The IEP goals in effect when the student reached the
student's 22nd birthday shall be resumed unless there is an
agreement that the goals should be revised to appropriately
meet the student's current transition needs.
