  • The receiving state shall make reasonable accommodations and modifications to address the needs of incoming students with disabilities, subject to an existing 504 or Title II Plans, to provide the student with education access to education; and
  • The receiving school may perform subsequent evaluations to ensure appropriate placement and appropriate services.
