Wyoming high school students will now be able to pass a course assessment in lieu of receiving a passing grade as part of a number of changes the State Board of Education has made to graduation requirements.
The board on Friday voted to approve a revised set of state high school graduation requirements.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/29Hf56v) that the proposed rules must be approved by Gov. Matt Mead.
Other proposed changes to the graduation requirements include eliminating the requirement to list proficiency tiers on diplomas.
The changes are part of an earlier legislation that requires the state board and districts to evaluate high school graduation requirements and to make sure that schools are in compliance with high school graduation standards.
