(a) In developing the individualized education program for an individual residing in a state hospital who is eligible for services under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (20 U.S.C. Sec. 1400 et seq.), a state hospital shall include on its interdisciplinary team a representative of the local educational agency in which the state hospital is located, and the individual’s state hospital teacher, depending on whether the state hospital is otherwise working with the local educational agency for the provision of special education programs and related services to individuals with exceptional needs residing in state hospitals. However, if a district or special education local plan area that is required by this section to provide a representative from the district or special education local plan area does not do so, the county office of education shall provide a representative.

(b) The state hospital shall reimburse the local educational agency for the costs, including salary, of providing the representative.

(c) Once the individual is enrolled in the community program, the local educational agency providing special education shall be responsible for reviewing and revising the individualized education program with the participation of a representative of the state hospital and the parent. The public agency responsible for the individualized education program shall be responsible for all individual protections, including notification and due process.
