New graduation requirements considered for IN high school students

New graduation requirements considered for IN high school students

The State of IN wants students to be prepared for future careers.

IN high school students will have new requirements to graduate, starting with the class of 2023.

The "no" votes came from the only kindergarten-grade 12 educators on the board, who included Jennifer McCormick, Indiana superintendent of public instruction; Steve Yager, a former superintendent of both Northwest Allen County Schools and Southwest Allen County Schools in suburban Fort Wayne; and Cari Whicker, principal of Sothern Wells Elementary School in Wells County.

Dr. Byron Ernest, chairman of the Graduation Pathways Panel, said the recommendations will provide students with a "diploma plus".

The new requirements are scheduled to take effect with students graduating in 2023.

They focus on skills and experiences, rather than test scores.

However, Pyotr Tolstoy, deputy speaker of the State Duma, the Russian parliament's lower house, has called for a boycott. Zhukov said that it was positive that Russian athletes could still participate in Pyeongchang.

They can do that through service or work projects, as well as college entrance exams.

Workforce-Aligned: The new pathways are created to ensure today's students gain the skills and traits they need to be successful in our rapidly-changing, modern economy-including a strong academic foundation, intellectual curiosity and a passion for lifelong learning.

The pathways were developed by the Graduation Pathways Panel, a SBOE subcommittee, which gathered input from hundreds of stakeholders during 30 combined hours of discussion over the past year.

The added rigor has stoked fears that the graduation rate will plummet and local schools will be overworked tracking the requirements.

Students who have difficulty meeting all of the requirements of the Core 40 diploma now also can graduate with a general diploma. "They will go a long way to ensure our students are truly prepared for success in whatever they choose to pursue after high school".
