Requests for academic accommodations for students may be initiated by parents and/or professional educators. The request must be directed to the student’s counselor, in writing, and must clearly state the accommodations requested. In addition, the following requirements will adhere to any request:
A diagnosis of a disability has been made within three years of the current request by a qualified, credentialed professional (not a primary care physician) whose specialty is linked to the disability under consideration.
The diagnosis is supported by appropriate data from professional academic and cognitive assessments and is clearly stated using terminology and references contained in the most current version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
Medical records are provided in support of the request for accommodations along with the documented history of previous support (e.g. IEP, 504, learning plans, etc.).
The disability limits one or more major life activities and the requested accommodations must be an appropriate match to the disability.
