2020 graduation options – capstone project guidance now available


Ohio Department of Education staff are pleased to share some additional materials on graduation requirements for students in the class of 2020.
Students in the class of 2020 may complete a capstone project to satisfy a component of Ohio’s graduation requirements. For the class of 2020, state law directed the Ohio Department of Education to develop guidance for districts or schools that outlines the components of successful capstone projects and a process for evaluating them so these experiences may satisfy graduation requirements. 
The class of 2020 capstone project guidance document now is available. The Department also has developed this capstone project toolkit that districts and schools can use to support the implementation of this graduation option. The Department will make additional tools and resources available throughout the summer to support capstone project implementation.
The class of 2020 work or community service guidance documents and toolkit also are available here.
Each of these resources includes answers to frequently asked questions. Direct additional questions to gradrequirements@education.ohio.gov.
