Policy

The Special Provisions in Curriculum and Assessment policy and associated procedures aim to ensure that students have fair opportunities to participate in and access assessments. Students may apply for special provisions on the grounds of a long-term impairment, personal circumstances, misadventure, or short-term difficulties.

The prime consideration is the impact of the condition on the student's capacity to participate in an assessment and access the requirements of the assessment.

The policy principles and procedures are aligned with the Commonwealth and Federal legislations - the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cwlth) and the Disability Standards for Education 2005. More information can be found at the DDA Education Standards Website.
