Status of State-Defined Alternate Diplomas in 2018-19
The possibility of developing a “state-defined alternate diploma” for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities was included in the 2015 reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, known as the Every Student Succeeds Act. To count this diploma in a graduation measure for accountability, several criteria must be met, including that it must be standards-based, aligned to state requirements for the regular high school diploma, and obtained within the time period for which the state ensures the availability of a free appropriate public education (FAPE).
