The Sample Process illustrating Common Points of Communication Between Interim-Program Schools (IPS) and Other Schools was developed by the Nebraska Department of Education's SEAC Committee on Education of Students in Out-of-Home Placements. It provides a sequential overview of information exchanged about a student attending an Interim-Program School between that education program, the school the student last attended, and the school where he or she will transfer. The Interim-Program School consults and works with those schools to determine what the child or youth has been studying and what yet needs to be taught in the various subject areas. As provided in the Nebraska Department of Education's "Rule 18: Interim-Program Schools in County Detention Homes, Institutions, and Juvenile Emergency Shelters", the schools collaboratively develop an Academic Advancement Plan for the student to make academic progress leading to grade promotion and graduation.

For more information about Interim-Program Schools and Rule 18, refer to the Systems Tool Kit - Part Four, Section C. Additional information is provided on the Nebraska Department of Education website: http://www.education.ne.gov/

The Sample Process for Delivery of Education Services to Students Attending Interim-Program Schools was also developed by the SEAC Committee on Education of Students in Out-of-Home Placements. It illustrates the primary actions or steps which occur in providing education and related services to students while temporarily attending an Interim-Program School. Many of the events in the Sample Process are required by Rule 18, while other aspects of the process are included as a matter of "best practice".

The Sample Process for Transition of Students from Interim-Program School to Public School or Other Education Program was developed by the SEAC Committee on Education of Students in Out-of-Home Placements as an accompaniment to the Sample Process for Delivery of Education Services discussed in the section above. The Sample Process for Transition illustrates the primary actions or steps which occur as a student transitions from attending an Interim-Program School through his or her return or enrollment in public school or other education program. The series of events described in this Sample Process are generally considered a matter of "best practice".

For more information about School Transition, Enrollment and Attendance, refer to the Systems Tool Kit - Part Four, Section D. Additionally, a "checklist" for Asking the Right Questions: School Transition for Students in Out-of-Home Care is provided in Systems Tool Kit - Part One, Tool B-3.
