Assessment Accommodations

To be eligible for assessment accommodations, the accommodation must be documented in the student's IEP, 504, or ELL plan, and the accommodation must be in classroom instruction and assessment for 90 days prior to the assessment.

SACs should work with their school's special education staff to identify students who would be eligible to receive accommodations for each state assessment.

Please visit each assessment page for accommodation deadlines.
