Badin High School provides special services for students with a disability. Each student served must have an Evaluation Team Report (ETR) from their local school district which identifies the student as one with a disability. Along with the ETR, the student must have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) that can be shared with Badin.

All documents must be reviewed and a conference held with the Badin Academic Support Team to ensure services can be provided which will meet the individual student’s needs. There is a limit per year to the number of students with disabilities who will be able to receive services.

Examples of some accommodations that are provided are as follows:

  • Extended Time on Tests/Assignments
  • Tests Read Aloud
  • Clarification of Directions on Tests and Assignments
  • Preferential Seating in Class
  • Copies of Teacher Notes Provided
  • Access to Kurzweil/Firefly
  • Other Accommodations as noted for the individual student on their Education or Service Plan are considered.
