6A-1.09963 High School Graduation Requirements for Students with Disabilities. (1) General requirements. Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, students with disabilities entering grade nine may attain a standard diploma and earn standard diploma designations by meeting the requirements in Sections 1003.4282(1)-(9) or 1002.3105(5) or 1003.4282(11) and 1003.4285 Florida Statutes (F.S.). Nothing contained in this rule shall be construed to limit or restrict the right of a student with a disability solely to the options described in this rule. A certificate of completion will be awarded to students who earn the required eighteen (18) or twenty-four (24) credits required for graduation, but who do not achieve the required grade point average or who do not pass required assessments unless a waiver of the results has been granted in accordance with Section 1008.22(3)(c)2., F.S., or participation in a statewide assessment has been exempted in accordance with Section 1008.212 or 1008.22(9), F.S. Students who entered grade nine before the 2014-2015 school year and whose individual educational plan (IEP), as of June 20, 2014, contained a statement of intent to receive a special diploma may continue to work toward a special diploma.

Access points are academic expectations intended only for students with significant cognitive disabilities and are designed to provide these students with access to the general curriculum. (b) Alternate Assessment. In accordance with Section 1008.22(3)(c), F.S., an alternate assessment is a statewide standardized assessment designed for students with significant cognitive disabilities in order to measure performance on the access points.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
