Description:

As communicated to school divisions in Superintendent’s Memorandum #223-18, dated August 17, 2018, the Virginia Substitute Evaluation Program (VSEP) is no longer available to students beginning with the 2018-2019 school year. To provide students who previously participated in VSEP with additional opportunities to earn verified credits, the Virginia Board of Education adopted revisions to the Guidelines for Standard Diploma Credit Accommodations for Students with Disabilities at its meeting on September 20, 2018. The Special Permission Credit Accommodations were added to provide those students with disabilities who previously might have used the VSEP with a pathway to earn the necessary locally awarded verified credits to obtain a standard diploma.
