Pathways to Graduation: Understanding Diploma Requirements, Options, Scoring and Commencement Credentials
(Generally for parents of youth in 8th grade or higher)
This presentation will offer parents information about the requirements that need to be met in order for any student to graduate with a Regents or local diploma. The available pathway options to meet these requirements includes the Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) Commencement Credential, which can motivate students to stay in school and develop the skills necessary to succeed in a variety of career paths. Attendees will also be informed of the appeals process to determine if a student may graduate with a diploma using a lower score. Additional scoring options for students with disabilities will be explained, along with the criteria to request a review for graduation-level proficiency of those students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) who cannot meet the graduation standards through the existing options.
