Graduation requirement flexibility information available 


The Department recently posted information online to address the fact that disruptions to Ohio’s State Tests in the spring of 2020 due to Ohio’s ordered school-building closure will continue to impact graduation eligibility for high school students. The information, titled Graduation Flexibility – 2021 and Beyond, describes changes made by newly enacted House Bill 164 that allow districts and schools to substitute an eligible student’s final course grade in an eligible course for the corresponding high school end-of-course examination.
