§303.211.

Changes: We have revised new §303.211(b)(6) to clarify

that toddlers with disabilities in a State that offers services under this section are subject to the transition

requirements in §303.209(b)(1)(i) and (b)(1)(ii), (c)(1),

and (d). We also have revised §303.211(b)(6) to describe

the lead agency’s obligations to ensure a smooth transition

for children age three and older who are receiving services

under §303.211 (i.e., transition from §303.211 services to

preschool, kindergarten, or elementary school). Under new

§303.211(b)(6)(ii)(A), the lead agency must notify the SEA

and the LEA where the child resides not fewer than 90 days before the child will no longer be eligible to receive, or will no longer receive, early intervention services under

§303.211. In new §303.211(b)(6)(ii)(B), the lead agency

must, with the approval of the parents of the child, convene a transition conference, among the lead agency, the parents, and the LEA, not fewer than 90 days--and, at the discretion of all of the parties, not more than 9 months-- before the child will no longer be eligible to receive, or

will no longer receive, §303.211 services, to discuss any

services that child may receive under Part B of the Act.

Finally, we have added §303.211(b)(6)(i)(C) to require lead

agencies to establish a transition plan in the IFSP not
