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?
