  • Students in the classes of 2014 - 2017 and those who are repeating ninth grade this school year will continue to operate under Ohio’s current graduation requirements.
  • Latest updates on additional graduation decisions as they occur and which decisions are left.
  • Presentation to school counselors on Ohio’s Options for a High School Diploma (Nov. 7)
