Grading of Special Education Students in Regular Education Classes

After IEP accommodations have been provided to students, they will be graded in the same way as other students in a course unless the student's IEP specifies a modified grading system be developed.  Despite the efforts of the student's case manager, there may be instances when a student fails a course.  This may happen for a variety of reasons; for example

  • The student may not be fully utilizing available IEP accommodations.
  • The student may not be utilizing their Tutorial time appropriately, applying effective study skills, completing homework assignments, or setting aside enough time to review for quizzes and tests.
  • The course itself may be very challenging for the student, or the student may have inappropriately taken the course against the advice of their guidance counselor.

If at any time you have concerns about how your child is progressing in a course or about the appropriateness of selected courses, please contact your child's case manager or teacher.
