Guidelines for readers and scribes

The adjudication process provides equity and accessibility to students with diverse abilities/disabilities who qualify for adaptations on graduation assessments.

Decisions to provide non-technological supports (readers and scribes) should be made based on the learning needs, learning styles and special needs of the student.
