Accommodations & Accessibility Guidelines
Michigan Virtual online instructors can make limited accommodations for students working under the guidance of an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Section 504 Plan. Due to the setup of the Michigan Virtual system, it is not possible for instructors to read content to students. However, tools such as text-to-speech are offered along with other accessibility options at Microsoft Accessibility. Apple has an option for OS X called VoiceOver, as well as Chrome OS.
Arrange for additional time on tests or quizzes for students by asking the individual instructor to remove the timer on assessments; however, the assessment must be completed in one sitting once opened. Since Michigan Virtual courses are matched to standards, content cannot be removed. Michigan Virtual will report the total points earned out of the total course points at the end of the term and it is the responsibility of the local school to assign whatever letter grade is appropriate on the student’s transcript. All assignments need to be completed by the course end date. If there are other accommodations you would like considered for your student, please feel free to discuss them with the online instructor.
