What happens to assistive technology devices when students leave the school system?

Answer: 

If the school district purchased the device, the device is the property of the school. The school could keep the device for use by other students, sell it, or decide to transfer the device to another district in which the student enrolls. If the family purchased the device, it is the property of the student and the family. For secondary students, this issue should be addressed in the transition plan.
