For secondary students (grades 6 through UN) with significant disabilities, specifically those secondary students who participate in the Nevada Alternate Assessment (NAA)
Digitability is a Computer Education and Technology curriculum program which can support the .5 credit requirement for the Alternative Diploma.
The Digitability curriculum also provides secondary students with pre-employment transition services (Pre-ETS) that align with the Pre-ETS requirements from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA, 2014).
Michele McKeone, CEO and founder of Digitability, has offered the online component of their curriculum through short-term licenses (will last the duration of this school year) so students throughout Nevada with significant disabilities, and their teachers, have access during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To receive access to the short-term licenses for Digitability, please contact Michele McKeone (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly. Provide the school and teacher name.
