All provisions of state law related to special education which apply to a child with a disability who is age twenty shall apply to a child with a disability whose twenty-first birthday occurs during a school year until the end of that school year. The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation of the State Department of Education shall, in compliance with federal guidelines, assume responsibility for the training of those individuals whose education or training is terminated and for whom additional supportive services are required.

Annotations

  • The age of twenty-one years is reached upon a person's twenty-first birthday, and, therefore, the term "to age twenty-one years" excludes any persons who have reached their twenty-first birthday. Monahan v. School Dist. No. 1, 229 Neb. 139, 425 N.W.2d 624 (1988).
