2 Reauthorization Principles
NASDSE’s ESEA Reauthorization Principles -If the principles of RtI and UDL are applied in classroom instruction and assessments, then there is no need to continue the current ‘carve out’ for 2% of students with disabilities to take an alternate assessment based on modified academic achievement standards. -However, until such time as UDL and RtI are fully implemented nationwide, NASDSE believes that the ESEA should permit this 2% ‘carve out’ in the ESEA regulations.
