SPSD - Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment
Accommodations
SPSD holds the following beliefs:
  • All children can learn.
  • Expectations for all students must be high with recognition of disability-based needs and the students' strengths.
  • Special Education services are an extension and adaptation of general education, rather than an alternate or separate system unless specified in an IEP.

All students will participate in the Student Assessment System in one of three ways:
  1. Students will participate fully in all components of the assessment system with no accommodations.
  2. Students will participate fully in all components of the assessment system with accommodations as documented in a plan (e.g., IEP, 504, RTI).
  3. Students will participate in an alternate assessment if the student's IEP team determines the student is unable to participate fully in all components of the assessment system with accommodations.

Accommodations for testing must follow the guidelines specified for each standardized assessment – NAEP, MAP, MEA.  Accommodations on standardized assessment should be the same as those used at all times in the classroom on Classroom Based Assessments.
