SECTION 2
TRANSFER OF PARENTAL RIGHTS AT AGE OF MAJORITY

IDEA 2004 outlines procedures for the transfer of parental rights to the student when the student reaches the age of majority (age 18), including students who are incarcerated in an adult or juvenile federal, state, or local correctional institution. Both the parents and the student must be notified of any transfer of rights that will take place. Students are to receive the notification at least one year before they reach the age of majority and a statement must be included in the IEP that the student has been informed of his or her rights, if any, that will transfer to the student on reaching age 18 (see Appendix D, Sections 8 & 9: Transfer of Rights Letters).

After the student attains the age of majority, if rights transfer, the District must provide any notice required by law (e.g., notice regarding an upcoming IEP Team meeting) to both the student and the parents. All other rights transfer to the student. If the student is determined incompetent under state law, then the rights remain with the parents.
