Students with Disabilities

TTU K-12' s flexibility allows accommodations for many students' special needs.



Online instruction presents different challenges than those in a traditional classroom. The curriculum is rigorous and is reading- and writing-intensive. Successful online students are able to take initiative and manage their own time.

Nevertheless, TTU K-12 strives to offer exceptional education programs that meet the needs of students with disabilities. To qualify, the student's Individual Education Plan (IEP) needs to indicate that the TTU K-12 online program is the appropriate instructional setting for the student and is the student's least restrictive environment.

Requesting Accommodations

A student requesting accommodations must submit either:

  • A signed Individual Education Plan (IEP) from the Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) committee report. This report must have been completed within the last three years.
  • A 504 Accommodation Form from the public school district in which the student is currently (or was previously) enrolled, describing any special considerations necessary to take a course and/or exams.

Things to Keep in Mind

Information regarding available disability accommodations should be obtained as soon as you enroll in a course or CBE.

Accommodations applied to one course do not automatically apply to other courses. Please be specific as to which courses you are requesting accommodations.
