Speaker: Joyce M. Hawk, Outreach Coordinator, Hudson Valley Special Education Parent Center
Location: Location: Valley Central High School Library
For: Any interested parents of students in 8th-12th grade, including parents of students with an IEP or 504 Plan
This workshop is not geared for parents of students who participate in the NYS Alternate Assessment (NYSAA) Program. Contact your child’s teacher if you need to clarify if your child participates in the NYSAA program.
This presentation will offer parents information about the requirements that need to be met in order for any student to graduate with a Regents or local diploma. The available pathway options to meet these requirements includes the Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) Commencement Credential, which can motivate students to stay in school and develop the skills necessary to succeed in a variety of career paths. Attendees will also be informed of the appeals process to determine if a student may graduate with a diploma using a lower score. Additional scoring options for students with disabilities will be explained, along with the criteria to request a review for graduation-level proficiency of those students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) who cannot meet the graduation standards through the existing options. Join us to learn new information or ask questions you may have.
