Flexible School Calendar Act of 2012 - If the bill passes and becomes law, SES will not require that all IEPs that start on the first day of school and end on the last day of school be amended to reflect the new dates that the school system will use regarding the start/ end date of school. This law if passed will affect all students and therefore, the LEA should notify all students of the new start date/end date for school year 2012-13.
The notice could include a statement that if a child has an IEP that starts on the first day of school and ends on the last day of school, the child’s IEP will be implemented based on the new dates for the school year.
