Graduation Changes for Students with IEPs

The new STAAR EOC assessments and the revisions to Commissioner’s Rule 89.1070 will impact ARD committee decisions this spring. What should districts and campuses do now to prepare for the 2011-12 school year?

Guidance from TEA related to these changes is still pending.  ESC Region XIII has created two documents to help districts begin to address the new rules and assessments. Use the following links to access the documents:
