    It is the goal of Seattle Public Schools for every student to graduate well-prepared for next steps, regardless of disability. Students receiving special education services may graduate in two ways:

    1. with a diploma
    2. with a certificate of attendance

    Diplomas will be one of two types: A Certificate of Academic Achievement (CAA) is granted when a student has met all of the graduation requirements without any course content modifications. A Certificate of Individual Achievement (CIA) is granted when requirements are met through modified courses.
