Commensurate School Day

What's Required

§89.1075. General Program Requirements and Local District Procedures. [Excerpt] (d) Students with disabilities shall have available an instructional day commensurate with that of students without disabilities. The ARD committee shall determine the appropriate instructional setting and length of day for each student, and these shall be specified in the student's IEP.

What We Do

 Students with disabilities must receive a commensurate school day. This means students with disabilities and their non-disabled peers:

  1. have a school day with the same beginning and end time, and
  2. attend school for the same number of hours. 

The school day for students with disabilities cannot be shortened due to administrative convenience such as the schedule of bus routes, or parents' convenience such as their work location or schedule.

An Admission, Review, and Dismissal/Individualized Education Program (ARD/IEP) committee may consider, review, and document a shorter school day based on the individual needs of the student.

This requirement applies to all students with disabilities ages 3-21 regardless of their disability, type of class, or program.
