Graduation Requirement Committee
Ohio House Bill 487 recently established new requirements for earning a high school diploma in Ohio. Starting with students who enter ninth grade for the first time in the fall of 2014, students will no longer take the Ohio Graduation Tests (OGTs). Instead, students will take end of course exams for seven important high school courses and a college admissions test for free in the fall of their junior year, starting with the class of 2018.
Although House Bill 487 established clear-cut requirements for high school graduation, the State Board has been tasked with working out the details for implementing them. The State Board created the Graduation Requirements Committee to focus on the implementation and to pass rules to finalize the transition.
The following State Board Members have agreed to take on this important work:
C. Todd Jones, Chair
Ohio Department of Education
25 S. Front St., Columbus
