From Nina Schutzman (Poughkeepsie Journal)
I was reading through the district's special education report from 2017, and saw mention of the graduation credentials pathways. I'd like to know the following:
- How many students graduated using an appeal option in the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 years?
- Of those students who graduated with an appeal option in the school years mentioned, how many had an IEP plan in each school year?
- How many had a Section 504 plan in each school year?
Response from Michelle Cardwell
The WCSD graduated a total of *963 students in the 2015-2016 school year. Nine (9) General Education students were granted an appeal (.09%) and five (5) students with an IEP were granted an appeal (.05%) of the total number of 963 students who successfully graduated.
