The Grade 2 universal screener referral is one of two pathways for a student to be screened for full-time (level IV) AAP services. It uses universal testing data from the NNAT and CogAT to capture a top percentage of scores in grade 2. Please note that test scores are not weighted in the holistic process and do not give a complete picture of a student profile.
In the 2020-21 SY, the use of local norms was piloted in 106 elementary schools. As expected, results showed the practice had some positive effect, particularly in Title I schools, with regards to ensuring students from historically underrepresented groups were considered for full-time AAP (level IV) services. Since the positive results of the successful pilot year, FCPS began using a local building norm component in all FCPS elementary schools when determining the universal screener referral group.
In fact, AAP curriculum and strategies are available to all classes beginning in kindergarten. There are multiple pathways for students to access AAP on the K-12 continuum of services. Full-time placement (level IV) is one of many services on the AAP continuum and is only available in grades 3-8. Beginning in middle school, AAP honors coursework is open-enrollment and does not include an identification process. Advanced coursework at the high school level are all open-enrollment and include opportunities for honors, AP, IB, dual enrollment, and other opportunities for students to develop their talent and interest areas.
Eligibility means that a committee has determined that a student needs a particular level of service. Eligibility for Level II and Level III AAP services is determined by a committee at the local school. Eligibility for Level IV AAP services is determined by a committee at the central level through the central selection committee members.
In 2013, House Bill 15 was passed during the 83rd Legislature, Regular Session. The purpose of the bill was to develop initial rules for level of care designations for hospitals that provide maternal services. The hospital level of care designations for maternal care rules went into effect on March 1, 2018.

However, body armor, especially level 4 body armor, is not cheap, so it can be a difficult call. It all comes down to knowing potential threats in your local area and if it makes sense to have some type of body armor available just in case.
Level IV of the Executive Schedule applies to the following positions, for which the annual rate of basic pay shall be the rate determined with respect to such level under chapter 11 of title 2, as adjusted by section 5318 of this title:
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) defines 6 levels of driving automation ranging from 0 (fully manual) to 5 (fully autonomous). These levels have been adopted by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
This is the lowest level of automation. The vehicle features a single automated system for driver assistance, such as steering or accelerating (cruise control). Adaptive cruise control, where the vehicle can be kept at a safe distance behind the next car, qualifies as Level 1 because the human driver monitors the other aspects of driving such as steering and braking.
In patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the larynx clinically staged as N+, the goal of surgical management is the total removal of the primary tumour with therapeutic neck dissection. However, the treatment strategy for clinically N0 patients is still controversial. Bilateral elective selective neck dissections including levels II, III and IV are usually indicated. Nonetheless, there is important morbidity associated with level IV dissection, such as phrenic nerve injury and lymphatic fistula following thoracic duct injury (when the left level IV is involved) 2.
Due to these potential complications, some Authors have analyzed the need for inclusion of level IV in neck dissections in patients with T3/T4N0 laryngeal cancer. It has been reported that the incidence of level IV metastasis is less than 4% 3-6.
The patterns of cervical metastasis from laryngeal cancer were studied in 262 radical neck dissection specimens from 247 patients. Occult positive adenopathy was found in 37% of patients, mainly on levels II-IV, whereas only rarely were levels I (14%) and V (7%) involved 8.
Selective lateral neck dissection (levels II-IV) was prospectively compared to type III modified radical neck dissection as part of elective treatment for patients with supraglottic and transglottic laryngeal cancer. After a mean follow-up of 42 months, no difference was found in the outcome between patients treated with either modality. It supports the use of lateral neck dissection as an effective treatment for patients with T2/T4 supraglottic and transglottic cancer, which is the elective treatment of choice for patients with laryngeal cancer 9.
One hundred forty-five selective neck dissections were performed at levels II-III in 79 patients who were surgically treated for laryngeal carcinomas. A more extensive neck dissection that included levels IV-V was performed in all patients with nodal metastasis pathologically demonstrated by intraoperative frozen section analysis. Pathologic assessment of neck dissection specimens revealed nodal metastasis at level IV in 2 patients (2.5%). After a follow-up of at least 24 months, no patients had regional recurrence 10.
In a series of 155 N0 patients with supraglottic cancer, whose treatment consisted of an elective neck dissection limited just to level II, 10 patients (6.5%) experienced ipsilateral neck recurrences after a minimum follow-up of 5 years 11.
A prospective study of 142 lateral neck dissections in 73 patients with laryngeal tumour and N0 neck evaluated the incidence of pathological metastases in level IV. Five necks had positive lymph nodes for microscopic metastasis in level IV (3.5%), all of which were ipsilateral. Separate skip metastases in level IV lymph nodes were observed in two cases. Postoperative chylous leakage and phrenic nerve paralysis occurred in 5.5% and 2.7%, respectively 12. In fact, potential damage to the major lymphatic vessels leading to chylous leakage and phrenic nerve paralysis are the two major complications associated with level IV dissection 5.
The results of our study further support a more selective approach, with dissection limited to levels II-III as the primary elective treatment of a clinically negative neck for patients with supraglottic and transglottic cancers. In spite of this, further prospective studies are necessary to determine its safety in the clinical setting. On the other hand, for patients with clinically positive adenopathy at higher levels (II-III), a more extensive neck dissection (modified radical neck dissection) would appear to be warranted.
An inspection that is a jurisdictional mandated inspection program that does not meet the requirements of any other level of inspection. An example will include inspection programs such as, but not limited to, school buses, limousines, taxis, shared-ride transportation, hotel courtesy shuttles and other intrastate/intra-provincial operations. These inspections may be conducted by CVSA-certified inspectors, other designated government employees or jurisdiction-approved contractors. Inspector training requirements shall be determined by each jurisdiction. No CVSA decal shall be issued for a Level VII Inspection but a jurisdiction-specific decal may be applied.

The NRC's enforcement program is based on the recognition that violations occur in a variety of activities and have varying levels of significance. The manner in which the NRC processes a violation is intended to reflect the significance of the violation and the circumstances involved.
The NRC first assesses the significance of a violation by considering (1) actual safety consequences; (2) potential safety consequences; (3) potential for impacting the NRC's ability to perform its regulatory function; and (4) any willful aspects of the violation. Violations are either assigned a severity level, ranging from Severity Level I for the most significant to Severity Level IV for those of more than minor concern or are associated with issues assessed through the reactor oversight process's Significance Determination Process (SDP) that are assigned a color of green, white, yellow, or red based on the risk significance. Although minor violations must be corrected, given their limited risk significance, they are not subject to enforcement action and are not normally described in inspection reports.
Severity Level I, II, and III violations and violations related to white, yellow, or red SDP findings with actual consequences are addressed within the escalated enforcement process and are cited in NOVs and may be subject to civil penalties. The NRC imposes different levels of civil penalties based on a combination of the type of licensed activity, the type of licensee, the severity level of the violation, and (1) whether the licensee has had any previous escalated enforcement action (regardless of the activity area) during the past two years or past two inspections, whichever is longer; (2) whether the licensee should be given credit for actions related to identification; (3) whether the licensee's corrective actions are prompt and comprehensive; and (4) whether, in view of all the circumstances, the matter in question requires the exercise of discretion. 041b061a72
