18A:46-18.4 Recommendation for adult educational services.

3. a. The Commissioner of Human Services, the Commissioner of Children and Families, or the Commissioner of Corrections, as appropriate, or their designees, in consultation with the Commissioner of Education, or his designee, shall determine whether a child, whose report is submitted to the Department of Human Services, Department of Children and Families, or the Department of Corrections, as appropriate, pursuant to subsection c. of section 2 of this act, will likely need adult educational services and, if the need will likely exist, develop a recommendation of all appropriate educational programs operated or approved by the Department of Human Services, Department of Children and Families, Department of Corrections or Department of Education which may be available when the child attains the age of 21. If necessary and appropriate, the Commissioner of Human Services, the Commissioner of Children and Families, or the Commissioner of Corrections, as appropriate, may conduct an evaluation of the child to determine if adult educational services will be needed. The recommendation of all programs shall be made available to the parent or guardian of the child as soon as practicable but not later than six months before the child attains the age of 21.

b. If the Commissioner of Human Services, Commissioner of Children and Families, or Commissioner of Corrections, as appropriate, determines, pursuant to subsection a. of this section, that the child will not require adult educational services, the commissioner shall notify the child's parent or guardian in writing of the determination. The notice shall be given as soon as practicable but no later than six months before the child attains the age of 21.
