(b) If a child has an individualized education program that has been developed, reviewed and revised by another school district and the child becomes a resident of a school district as provided by ORS 339.133 (Determination of residency of student for school purposes) or 339.134 (Residency of child with disability) or other law, the school district must implement the individualized education program developed by the other school district until a new individualized education program is developed.

(2) The State Board of Education shall establish by rule the contents of an individualized education program, including transition services, and the procedures for the development, review and revision of an individualized education program. The board shall also adopt by rule standard forms for use in developing an individualized education program.

(3) Each school district shall use the individualized education program forms established by rule under subsection (2) of this section in the development, review and revision of all individualized education programs.

(4) Notwithstanding subsection (3) of this section, a school district may use alternate forms in the development, review and revision of an individualized education program if the school district submits the form to the Department of Education and the department approves the use of the alternate form.

(5) In considering whether to approve an alternate form under subsection (4) of this section, the department shall consider whether the form meets the requirements for the contents of an individualized education program adopted under subsection (2) of this section and whether the form satisfies the intent of subsection (4) of this section to reduce unnecessary or confusing paperwork. The department shall approve or disapprove an alternate form submitted under subsection (4) of this section within 10 days of receiving the alternate form.
