HSC Disability Provisions
Dear H.S.C. Parents or Carers,
In order to be considered for Disability Provisions in HSC examinations, applications have to be submitted by the school before the end of Term 1, Week 11, Friday 8th of April. A number of parents have already contacted the school regarding the necessary paperwork. The Year Advisor, Mr Robert Klein will be handling this process.
Parents or care givers need to ensure that medical documentation is submitted, in digital format, to me by the end of Term 1, Week 11, Friday 7th April. The application has to be completed by the school, online, and submitted with extensive documentation. Parents and care givers are required to supply supporting medical documents from the relevant practitioner that confirm diagnosis of a particular existing condition. The documents need to be current, that is, less than 12 months old.
Disability provisions provide studnets who have special needs with practical support in the H.S.C. examinations. Student's special examination needs are usually ongoing and a number of the students have been receiving disability provisions in school examinations since Year 7. It must be stressed that although the students may have been provided with disability provisions in the past, it is NOT assured that the Board of Studies (BOS) will necessarily grant any provisions at all. In recent years the BOS has drastically tightened the allocation of such provisions.
Please refer to and download the following form and return it to the school as soon as possible.
