ILBA - Assessment Accommodations, Modifications and Exemptions

Code: ILBA
Adopted: 5/12/99
The district believes the annual assessment of student and district progress is a vital component of the instructional process.  While it is the district’s intention to include every student in the Oregon Statewide Assessment Program, it is recognized that a few students may need to be exempted from this assessment because of unique educational, physical or emotional backgrounds.  In addition, some students may participate in assessments under modified conditions as described in the Oregon Statewide Assessment Administration Manual.  Accommodations described in the manual will be considered standard administration procedures for all students.
