A student enrolled in a special education instructional program who has either (1) satisfied the credits/units established by the Iowa Department of Education and this district and/or (2) satisfactorily completed the program outlined in the student’s individual education program will be graduated with the same considerations allowed any other student who has met all graduation requirements.

The district shall issue a regular diploma, allow the same ceremonial activities, and provide any other recognition to special education students that are provided to students graduating from regular education.

At least eighteen (18) months prior to the projected date of graduation, the written individual education program for each student receiving special education shall specify the anticipated date of graduation and criteria yet to be met prior to graduation.
