For students who are alternately assessed, all units are aligned/connected to the Common Core Learning Standards respective of specific cognitive abilities and in accordance with the Individualized Education Program (IEP).
- In addition to being aligned to the Common Core Standards, all District 75 curriculum K-12 (standardized and alternate) should also be connected/aligned to the NYS Career Development and Occupational Standards (CDOS). This is key to the college and career readiness of our students, as the CDOS can be birthed and implemented in school-based activities, work-based activities and connecting activities.
- For District 75 students ages 18-21, the NYS Career Development and Occupational Standards (CDOS) should be the primary standards utilized for the development of units of study. Common Core standards connections should still be made, whenever relevant. Alternately assessed students in this category are typically in full-time community work based learning programs.
- These notes consider the Proposed Amendment of Sections 100.5, 100.6, and 200.5 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education to Establish a Regents Certificate of Work Readiness for Students with Disabilities Skills and Achievement Commencement Credential for Students with Severe Disabilities.
