Ohio Curriculum Opt-Out
Ohio has added a higher level course in math and science in its requirements for high school graduation, starting with the Class of 2014. If you feel your child is not prepared to achieve the higher level courses or is planning a career that does not require higher level math or science, your family may choose to opt-out of the new high school curriculum for graduation. The opt-out provision is available only to the graduating Classes of 2014 through 2017, unless new law extends it.
