A statement of measurable annual goals, including academic and functional goals (and, for children with disabilities who take alternate assessments aligned to alternate achievement standards, a description of short-term objectives) designed to:

Meet each of the child’s other educational needs that result from the child’s disability.


A description of how the child’s progress toward meeting the annual goals will be measured and when periodic reports on the progress the child is making toward meeting the annual goals (such as through the use of quarterly or other periodic reports, concurrent with the issuance of report cards) will be provided;


A statement of the specific special education and related services and supplementary aids and services, based on peer-reviewed research to the extent practicable, to be provided to the child, or on behalf of the child, and a statement of the program modifications or supports for school personnel that will be provided for the child:


To advance appropriately toward attaining the annual goals;


To be involved and progress in the general education curriculum and to participate in extracurricular and other nonacademic activities; and


To be educated and participate with other children with disabilities and children without disabilities,

An explanation of the extent, if any, to which the child will not participate with children without disabilities in the regular class and activities described in subsection (1)(d) of this rule.


A statement of any individual appropriate accommodations that are necessary to measure the academic achievement and functional performance of the child on State and district-wide assessments of student achievement that are needed for the child to participate in the assessment:


A child may not be exempt from participation in State or district-wide assessment, including extended and juried assessments, because of a disability, unless the parent has requested an exemption under OAR 581-022-0612.
