Jessica:  My son’s modifications listed in his IEP are not allowed when he is being tested on a NC state End of Course test. They are also not allowed on the ACT test. This resulted in him receiving very low scores. The End of Course tests are included in his grade which takes them from hard earnd Bs to Ds. The D is what is on his transcript and is affecting his ability to be accepted into colleges. The ACT tests result in a lower score on certain subtests which affects the overall score bringing it down. Colleges will not even look at his application due to this low overall score. Can I fight this somehow? I am so frustrated for my son that I am just about ready to sue the state of NC for “trumping” his IEP. To me, testing him without his IEP mods is the same as telling a parapalegic that the only way he is allowed to acces a building is without his wheelchair…oh and it will be graded too.
