Board of Ed approves new graduation pathways

Board of Ed approves new graduation pathways”

The State Board of Education has just approved new graduation requirements for IN high schoolers.

Wednesday, the Indiana State Board of Education voted 7-4 to approve the "Graduation Pathways", which were previously approved by a special panel in early November.

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.

It also includes a system of so-called "graduation pathways".

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

Students meet that requirement through project, service, or work-based learning experiences.

The board says the pathways are created to give students the skills and experiences they will need to help them succeed both in higher education and finding a job. "Following hours of public comments and hundreds of emails from parents, teachers, counselors and school administrators, asking members to slow down and figure out the many unknowns, their voices were ignored".

One of the requirements would be to demonstrate employability.

Students would also have to show they're ready for post-secondary life by either earning an honors diploma, getting an industry certificate, doing an apprenticeship, or taking tests like the SAT, ACT or ASVAB.

Students who have difficulty meeting all of the requirements of the Core 40 diploma now also can graduate with a general diploma.

Rigor: To address the skills gap and ensure all students are prepared to succeed, we need to establish higher expectations for all students-with the foundational belief that every student is capable of achieving personal success.
