(2) For an initial IEP, a school district must ensure that:
(a) The school district holds a meeting to develop the student's IEP within thirty days of a determination that the student is eligible for special education and related services; and

(4) If a student eligible for special education transfers from one school district to another school district within the state and has an IEP that was in effect for the current school year from the previous school district, the new school district, in consultation with the parents, must provide FAPE to the student including services comparable to those described in the student's IEP, until the new school district either:
