Section 827.50 Discharge
A student may be discharged from a School when:
a) The student graduates from high school.
b) The student reaches age 22. The student is eligible to receive education services through the day before his or her 22nd birthday; however, 89 Ill. Adm. Code 765.30(a) shall apply to students who become 22 during the school year.
c) The student's parents or guardians move out of State, unless a parent or guardian is a member of the armed forces.
d) The student's parents or guardians request the discharge.
e) It has been determined through an ER conducted in accordance with Section 827.60 that the student is inappropriately placed.
f) The student is absent for 60 consecutive school days and the parents or guardians cannot be reached or will not provide information concerning the absence or the anticipated date the student will return. In these cases, the School shall contact the local school district about whether the student will return (e.g., due to long term hospitalization, death, change of residence) and request assistance in locating and/or working with the parents or guardians.
g) The student is expelled for behavior or a condition that is not, or does not result from, his or her disabilities, as indicated in the Illinois State Board of Education's rules for Special Education (23 Ill. Adm. Code 226.400).
h) The student, when expelled, is returned to the local school district or LEA and it is the responsibility of the local school district or LEA to secure an appropriate education placement for the student. The School is not responsible for providing interim services; however, when appropriate and applicable, the School will provide program and technical assistance, if needed.
