Graduation Pathways Recommendation

There has been a committee working at the state level (consisting mainly of folks who are not public school educators) to create a graduation pathway recommendation for the State of Indiana. This recommendation will go to the Indiana Department of Education for approval.  I have attached a draft of their recommendations.  Please note that as of 2022, students must satisfy all three requirements.  Within each requirement there are choices for how to achieve that requirement.  In the second page of the document there are further details including the impact on students graduating prior to 2022.

You may submit public comment at until the December 1, 2017 Indiana State Board of Education meeting.  The final decision on the graduation pathways is expected to be made at the December 1 State Board of Education meeting.
