Tenant wants to break her 1 year lease early

Are there any standards for someone that wants to break a lease early?  Do you just tell them that is not an option?  Our tenant is transferring schools and wants a place closer to her new school.  Do you charge a fee?  hold deposit?

There are specific Laws for breaking a lease, but you must include them in your lease. Most states require tenant to pay rent until landlord finds a new tenant. Although, the landlord have to make a substantial effort in finding a new lessee
Meaning, if you were to explain your activities to find a new tenant to a judge, would the judge believe you really tried to find a new tenant?
Thank you!  That is kind of what we were thinking of doing so I appreciate the advice!
