KY Alternate Assessment Participation Guidelines
This session is designed to provide guidance and support to Admissions and Release Committee (ARC) members in the application of the recently revised KY Alternate Assessment Participation Guidelines. Participants will engage in an in-depth look at each of the participation criterion and the relevant data and sources of evidence to support each decision. Teams will have the opportunity to practice determining participation in Alternate Assessment by synthesizing the student case study data from various scenarios.
The Kentucky Department of Education recently released online learning modules related to the 1% cap and the participation guidelines. The KDE Alternate Assessment and Diploma Advisory Group highly recommends anyone who works with a student with a significant cognitive disability to complete these online training modules. The modules can be found at this link. https://learn.hdi.uky.edu/product-category/k-12-special-education/spdg-1-training/
Participants interested in this session must have completed the online training modules and quizzes prior to the session. Participants must bring Certificates documenting completion of each required module with them to the work session.
