Grades: NOT GRADING WORK, INFORMAL ASSESSMENT

Eva:  I have never encountered this…. We met as an IEP team and decided to hold a student back in the 8th grade pending an independent assessment. The child’s placement was to remain unchanged until we learned more. I just found out the school has NOT been taking her attendance but has had the high school do so, and has NOT been grading her work. The teacher has simply been informally assessing progress toward goal. Is this even legal??

The child should be working on grade-level curriculum (modified if necessary), and her work should be evaluated, so they can give her targeted assistance.
