Text reads: When a student with an I E P transfers within the same state or to another state, the school is required to provide free and appropriate public education or FAPE. This includes comparable services to those described in the incoming I E P.”

While IDEA requires that the new school provide services, it does not require that the services at the new location be exactly the same as those provided by the previous school.
