represented in the General Assembly:
The School Code is amended by adding Section
14-17 as follows:
(105 ILCS 5/14-17 new)
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.
(b) This Section does not apply to any student who is no
longer a resident of the school district that was responsible
for the student's IEP at the time the student reached the
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.
(d) If a student was in a private therapeutic day or
residential program when the student reached the student's
22nd birthday, the school district is not required to resume
that program for the student if the student has aged out of the
program or the funding for supporting the student's placement
in the facility is no longer available.
(e) Within 30 days after the effective date of this
amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly, each school
district shall provide notification of the availability of
services under this Section to each student covered by this
Section by regular mail sent to the last known address of the
student or the student's parent or guardian.
