From ODE: “Ohio Academic Content Standards – Extended (OACS-E) are available online”June 18, 2012
Following the Ohio Academic Content Standards-Extended (OACS-E) will ensure that students with significant cognitive disabilities are provided with multiple ways to learn and demonstrate knowledge. Professional development on these standards has begun with online modules available through the Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) website. Teachers will implement these standards extensions during the 2012-2013 school year. The extended standards will be used to develop a new adaptive on-demand, performance-based alternate assessment, slated for implementation in spring 2013. For more information about the extensions or the new Alternate Assessment, please contact Andrew Hinkle, Office for Exceptional Children, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (614) 644-7304; or Bill Sternberg, Office of Curriculum and Assessment, at email@example.com or (614) 466- 0223.
