H.S. Grade Modifications for Sp.Ed. students/QUESTION?
Bluegrass Educator

    In our high school, I have noticed that practically all the
    modification/accommodation sections on IEP's list this
    strange modification: If Brenda's grade falls below
    passing in a regular ed. class, then the grade is
    multiplied times 1.2! Is this a modification that exists
    only in KY? I've never seen this particular modification
    listed on an IEP from another state. It's kind of a one-
    size-fits-all modification and it definitely is not based
    on the individual needs, strengths, or weaknesses of a
    specific student. Anybody out there ever hear of using this
    2.3 multiplier?
