    * A safety net for students with disabilities continues to be available, allowing the student to earn a local diploma by passing RCTs rather than Regents exams for graduation.

    *Students with disabilities have the ability to graduate with an IEP diploma, which indicates they have met individualized goals. Students graduating with an IEP diploma have not met the state testing and/or credit requirements required for graduation.
