Q: What are the responsibilities of the school board to provide information to the college for students who have IEP’s and are taking Dual Credits?
From a quick scan of colleges with dual credit programs, it appears that the responsibility lies with the student, not the board or the high school. But the dual credit teacher at the school board should work with the teachers at the college.
Each of the dual credit college programs we looked at had a process in place for students with IEPs. All of them said it was very important to ” note that process in which your IEP information is shared is very different from the process at the secondary level. ” They
Here are excerpts from the IEP policy for St. Lawrence College, (SLC) which serves the Brockville, Kingston area:
- The IEP must accompany the application form for the Dual Credit program;
- The school board Dual Credit teacher will review the IEP and transfer the information to the SLC Individualized Student Learning & Education Plan;
- The SLC Individualized Student Learning & Education Plan will be reviewed with an SLC counsellor and the Dual Credit Teacher. Decisions will be made as to which services the student should access;
- The Dual Credit Teacher will meet with the student and provide a copy of the plan which has been signed and dated by the St. Lawrence College counselor. The available supports will be discussed;
- The student must:
- Discuss accommodation needs with your St. Lawrence College teacher. Note: Your college teacher does not receive a copy of your IEP;
- Give applicable letters to your SLC teacher – ISLEP/Accom Letter;
- If your accommodation requires tests to be written in the Testing Centre, please inform your college teacher 3 days in advance of a test to have the test taken to the Testing Centre;
- If your accommodation requires note taking, readers & scribes, or testing, please meet with you campus counsellor and bring your timetable;
- Students will have to complete a test form – 3 days in advance (if required)
I hope this helps.
