I work n a rural school that is fairly small. We have a total of 1200 k-12 students in one building with about 450 high school students. This is my second year working in the district as school psychologist and special education coordinator. The school has been very slow in addressing the services of students based upon their needs not just their labels. One of the issues that has been brought to my table is how to "grade" students with disabilities. Last year a student with severe disabilities graduated from general education classes (i.e. Economics, government, algebra 2, etc.) with mostly A's and was in the top 10% of his class. On some level, it is not an issue, but in this case it became an issue when the father tried to claim that his son did not need monetary support, showing his report card as evidence that he was smart and could be self sufficient . So, my question is, how are high schools grading students who's curriculum is being highly modified?
