This bulletin provides guidance and direction to Missouri local education agencies (LEAs) regarding the U.S. Office of Special Education Program's findings that indicate Individualized Education Program (IEP) transition meetings for students with a disability failed to: (1) provide a notice to parents of the IEP meeting with the required components, (2) invite the student to the meetings, and (3) invite representatives of any other agencies likely to be responsible for providing or paying for transition services. Information is provided on IEP meeting notification content, student participation in the IEP transition meeting, consideration of the student's preferences and interests when developing the transition services for the IEP, invitations to the IEP meeting for representatives of agencies likely to be responsible for providing or paying for transition services, identification of which agency will provide and pay for each of the transition services listed in the IEP, identification of the amount and types of services provided by other agencies in the IEP, and the responsibility of the school district for ensuring that the student receives a free, appropriate public education.
