According to 34 C.F.R §200.6 (c)(4), the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) is seeking to extend the waiver from the United States Department of Education (USDE) for the number of students that may be assessed on the Alternate Assessment-Alternate Academic Achievement Standards (AA-AAAS) for the 2021-2022 school year. The WVDE anticipates exceeding the 1.0 Percent State-Level Participation Cap due to the most recent data available (2020-2021). All alternate assessment placement decisions are made for individual students by their IEP team members.
