New York’s State Education Department recently advised that school districts provide special education services to some students with disabilities through age 22: an additional year that will likely impact district budgets.

Harris Beach attorneys Jeffrey J. Weiss and Anne M. McGinnis, members of the firm’s K-12 Education Industry Team, recently joined a New York State School Boards Association’s podcast to discuss the advisory and its implications for school districts.

The Special Education Students Aging Out of the System – Changes in Eligibility Criteria episode focused on specifically the rules for determining when a student with a disability has aged out of the eligibility criteria.
