High School Graduation Requirements Review

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is conducting research to gather stakeholders’ opinions on:

  • students’ needs with respect to high school graduation;
  • whether or not the current graduation requirements are meeting students’ needs; and
  • the purpose and value of the distinction between academic and general status.
