Graduation Requirements for Students with Disabilities: Policy Recommendations
Burdette, Paula
Project Forum
This proceedings document provides a synthesis of the presentations on the historical and research background of graduation requirements for students with disabilities and of a panel discussion based on implementation of the various requirements. Based on the presentations and discussions, the forum participants described and refined 14 issues related to graduation requirements for students with disabilities and then developed recommendations to address the impact of each issue. While the group felt strongly that each recommendation is integral to solving the pervasive issues with graduation requirements, not only for students with disabilities, but for any struggling student, they prioritized their recommendations in light of the likelihood of implementation and significance of the impact that each recommendation would have. The top five priorities for both likelihood of implementation and significance of impact are listed in order. The last nine recommendations are listed in diminishing order based only on their significance of impact.
