7222 CREDENTIAL OPTIONS FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

The District is committed to ensuring that students with disabilities are provided appropriate opportunities to earn a Regents or Local Diploma or other exiting Commencement Credential in accordance with the Commissioner's Regulations. To this end, graduation and transition plans shall take into account the various pathways available to these students.

Where appropriate, the District will also award other diplomas and/or credentials that are authorized by and specified in Commissioner’s Regulations, to students with disabilities who earn them.

The Committee on Special Education will determine the appropriate credential(s) for students with disabilities to pursue and will assure students meet the criteria for such credentials. The high school counselors of students with disabilities will monitor each student’s plan and program to assure the student enrolls in required courses and completes all requirements for the credential he/she has been designated by the CSE to receive.

Students with disabilities will be provided access to the required courses and testing programs needed for achieving the diploma and/or commencement credentials available to them until they have earned a regular high school diploma or through the end of the school year in which they reach age 21, whichever is earlier.
