Pacific Pines State High is committed to reducing barriers to success for all students including the recognition that some students require adjustments for assessment and exams. AARA (Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments) are actions taken by the school to minimise, as much as possible, barriers for a student whose disability, impairment, medical condition or other circumstances may affect their ability to read, respond to or participate in assessment.
Who is eligible for an AARA?
Any student who meets the criteria below (and on the AARA Factsheet) could be eligible for an AARA.
How do students apply for an AARA?
Students can download the Student AARA Application Form (Years 7-10 and Years 11-12) and Medical Application Form for long term AARA. Short Term applications are to be submitted to email firstname.lastname@example.org (or handed in at the main office) before midnight the due date of an assessment draft/final or before midnight on the day of a missed exam. Long Term AARAs can be submitted at any time.
