DIFFERENTIAL GRADUATION AND COMPETENCY STANDARD REQUIREMENTS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH EXCEPTIONAL NEEDS

The School Board recognizes that course requirements adopted for students enrolled in regular educational programs may not be appropriate for all students enrolled in District special education programs. Students with diagnosed disabilities that prevent them from regular course requirements may complete substitute courses.

Students with exceptional needs should meet the regular District requirements to the extent that their handicaps or disabilities permit. The Individualized Education Program Team (IEP) will determine if a student's handicaps or disabilities preclude the student from attaining the District's regular standards. The determination and development of appropriate differential standards will be included in the student's individualized education program.
