New Graduation Pathways for the Class of 2020
The Washington State Board of Education has revised rules concerning high school graduation requirements that take effect with the Class of 2020. The new rules have been revised in response to House Bill 1599 (passed in the 2019 legislative session) which eliminated the Certificate of Academic Achievement high school diploma that students previously earned by passing the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) or completing an alternative demonstration of college and career readiness. The legislation replaced this requirement with eight pathways students may choose to graduate.
In our free webinar Thursday, December 19th at 12:30 pm, Steve Smith, Executive Director of the Black Education Strategy Roundtable, will provide an overview of the new high school graduation rules and answer your questions.
Moderated by League of Education Voters Communications Director Arik Korman.
