We got a notice about SD from the school yesterday (still ps for now) saying they have decided to give her extra time to take the standardized tests next week. She could definitely use extra time to finish things, when she feels rushed she doesn't do as well.
But my first thought was, how about her spelling tests? Math tests? Reading tests? All the regular classroom tests that she doesn't do great on...no one gives her extra time for those, but when it's the state standardized tests, the school is all about accomodations.
She doesn't need crazy accomodations, she doesn't have an IEP or 504 or anything like that. She is quiet, a good kid, and barely on level, she just gets pushed ahead. A big reason I want to HS her, she can go at her own pace and catch up on some of the things she has yet to master in ps.
My stack of reasons to HS just keeps getting bigger.
