What is a Personal Curriculum Modification ?
  • This is a documented process that modifies
    certain requirements of the Michigan Merit
    Curriculum (graduation requirements).
  • Modification is allowed for only two reasons
  • A student wishes to go beyond the academic credit
    requirements by adding more math, science, or
    English.
  • A student with an IEP needs to modify the credit
    requirements based on his or her disability.
