Parents, would you want your child to complete their academic “career” with only this?
It’s not a diploma. It’s not a license.
It’s a piece of paper that says your child attended school but for whatever reason was not able to graduate.
What it also says is YOUR CHILD IS A DISABLED CHILD!
This violates their privacy rights. This violates their medical information.
It’s difficult enough for folks with GED’s to get a more than minimum wage job or entry into community college or the military. What will this really do? Community colleges have already stated it’s not a recognized document for acceptance/matriculation. So what’s then point?
This document explains the new certificates available to special Ed students. The CDOS and SACC are NOT diplomas and in our opinion are a violation of FERPA, basically telling employers that this person has a disability.
