Educators must make every effort to meet these specified deadlines for each test and grade. Students new to the Connecticut public school system after March 1, 2023, who are determined eligible for the alternate assessment system may submit the Alternate Assessment System Eligibility Form after these established dates, prior to student testing. The submission of the eligibility form through the DEI registers a student for the alternate assessment system. Without the submission of the Connecticut Alternate Assessment System Eligibility Form, the student will not have access to the alternate assessments. Reminder: Only CSDE trained teachers have the necessary permissions to enter the Connecticut Alternate Assessment System Eligibility Form into the DEI.
