Guidance Document Information
||Standard Diploma Credit Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
||The guidelines support implementation of legislation in 2012 which amended § 22.1-253.13:4 of the Code of Virginia to strengthen postsecondary education and workplace readiness opportunities for all students and to consolidate the number of Board of Education approved diplomas.
The Board was required to adopt emergency regulations to establish the new diploma requirements, effective for students entering the ninth grade for the first time in 2013-2014. Among other requirements, the legislation eliminated the Modified Standard Diploma and required the Board to “make provision in its regulations for students with disabilities to earn a standard diploma.”
In June 2012, the Board adopted emergency amendments to the Standards of Accreditation (SOA) to permit students with disabilities to have “credit accommodations” to earn a Standard Diploma.
