When a boy I know walked in to take the PSAT today, I immediately called the ISS department because I know this young man has test modifications on his IEP and I knew that he would not get them in the room I was proctoring in. Imagine my surprise when I heard, "Oh, none of our kids applied for modifications this year. They are all taking the exam like everyone else."
I asked an ISS teacher and she told me it is the job of the parent to request modifications. Someone in that department sent out letters, informing parents of their rights, but there was no follow through. The students were denied something that could have helped them.
Someone missed the boat on this one and once again, children are being left behind.
