Claire: My son’s Case Manager tells me that you cannot have modifications in a high school SOL course. This does not sound lawful, and goes against the meaning of an INDIVIDUALIZED Education Plan. My son has always had major modifications and is fully included in 8th grade (and always has been). But when discussing high school transition, I’m told in high school he can no longer have these modifications in SOL courses. He will not pass them without MODS. He will not pass SOLs anyway… but my son is a very unique situation. Please help!!
I can think of a couple of people you might want to contact about this. One would be your district’s transition coordinator, if there is one. The other would be the special ed quality assurance office for your state.
