New Graduation Requirements

 

 

The Ohio Department of Education has changed the graduation requirements regarding number of credits needed beginning with the Class of 2014. The state has also instructed all school districts to offer "Credit Flexibility" programs that allow students to earn credit for educational opportunities that occur outside the classroom as well as offer an option to "test out" of a class if mastery of the material is shown and still earn credit for that class. The new requirements also include a credit waiver for physical education for particpation in two seasons of athletics, marching band and cheerleading. INFORMATION & DOCUMENTS:
