‚ÄčAt times there may be a need for a student to seek support for their learning due to foreseen or unforeseen circumstances that impact their ability to engage in their educational program. In these circumstances, the school will work with a student and parent/carer to provide appropriate support. Our school supports students in line with policy and procedures from the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) for providing Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments (AARA) for Disability, Long term health concerns and/or Illness/Misadventure. Additionally, Springfield Central State High School's Senior School Assessment Policy is utilised for supporting staff in making decisions, in some circumstances, for support for students in the Senior School.  

 

Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments (AARA)

 

The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) recognises that some students have disability, impairment and/or medical conditions,

or experience other circumstances that may be a barrier to their performance in assessment. Access arrangements and reasonable adjustments (AARA) are designed to assist in Senior School.

 

AARA minimise barriers for eligible students to demonstrate their learning, knowledge and skill in assessment. Students are required to complete and submit relevant QCAA medical forms as well as the relevant AARA

or illness/misadventure form, which informs our decisions about appropriate adjustments and arrangements for Applied, Applied (Essential), General, General (Extension), Short Course and Senior External Examination (SEE) assessments.

 

See Here for further specific information.

 

Application process

 

Students seeking consideration for AARA or Illness /Misadventure, need to provide documentation to their relevant Guidance Officer, respective Head of Department Junior, Middle or Senior School or Deputy Principal to help inform a decision. The QCAA AARA medical form, change of conditions form and/or medical certificate is required for consideration by the school and the QCAA. Relevant medical documentation or similar formal documentation, that provides a reasonable explanation about the reason for AARA is required to inform a decision.
