Two additional graduation options available for the class of 2018 only

The Department expects that most students will meet one of the three existing pathways and districts should continue to work with students, as appropriate, to meet these requirements. However, the recent budget bill authorized two additional options only for students in the class of 2018 who entered grade 9 between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015. These options provide an opportunity for those students who do not otherwise meet one of the three existing pathways to graduation to earn a diploma.
