Graduation for Students with Disabilities
The district allows any student with a disability to participate in the graduation ceremony of his or her high school graduating class and all related graduation activities if the student:
a) met the eligibility criteria for an SACC or CDOS commencement credential
b) has not otherwise qualified to receive a Regents or local diploma; and
c) has an IEP that prescribes special education, transition planning, transition services, or related services beyond the student’s four academic years after entering high school.
The Superintendent will consider any recommendation of the student’s Committee on Education as well as the student’s own expressed preference regarding participation; a student with a disability may decline to participate in any or all graduation-related activities.
