Students who receive modified content in at least one course for state graduation credit are eligible to continue for services after meeting credit and assessment requirements for graduation (TAC 89.1070). Ask your ARD committee when eligibility for FAPE (free and appropriate public education) will end.
Since credits and assessments have been met, the "curriculum" for 18+ is the student's post-school plan:
The focus of 18+ services should be to answer these questions. Students receiving 18+ services should be in the community as much as possible, and accessing the campus or school-owned property as little as possible.
If you are a parent, help your child to communicate their plans for adulthood. Share what you see for your child's life, and how you see your role in supporting them. Learn about the rights and responsibilities that change at age 18.
If you are an adult student, talk to your teachers and your family about your interests, your goals, and what you want for your life after graduation.
