Board Of Regents Approves New Graduation Options

 

New Pathways Will Better Prepare Students for College and Careers

and Improve New York's Economic Competitiveness
 

The New York State Board of Regents today approved new options for students to meet the State’s high school graduation requirements. The new regulations establish multiple, comparably rigorous pathways to graduation, including pathways in Career and Technical Education (CTE); Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); the Arts; Biliteracy (languages other than English); and the Humanities.

 
The new regulations also establish a two-year Global History and Geography course requirement and modify the design of the Global History and Geography Regents Exam.  Regents Chancellor Merryl H. Tisch said the goals of the new options are to improve the state’s 74.9 percent graduation rate, increase the percentage of students who graduate prepared for college and careers (currently 37.2 percent), and help prepare more students for success in the 21st century economy.  Read more.....
