DPI Approves New Graduation Requirements

In a statement released today, DPI released its final set of state graduation requirements, set in stone, effective with the 9th grade class of 2009-10.

“The Future-Ready Core will help ensure that students graduate with the academic foundation they need for success in the global economy,” State Board of Education Chairman Howard Lee said, in the statement. “The Core gives students the ability to tailor course concentrations to fit their interests and goals – including opportunities for college-level work – while building a strong academic foundation.”

Students will be required to earn a minimum of 21 units of credit to get a high school diploma.

    Excuse me for being off topic but I’m hoping you’ll come to Tuesday’s GCS Board meeting and support this effort.

    Thank you.
