MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
Potential Revisions of High School Graduation Requirements – the Committee continued its discussion of the possible policy directions for the Regents to consider as they continue their discussions on how to prepare students for college and careers. Senior Deputy Commissioner John King presented information on the rationale for the proposed changes, policy directions for consideration - including increased flexibility to improve student outcomes, and possible enhanced strategies to increase graduation requirements. Department staff will begin to engage stakeholders on the development of these ideas through regional forums being held around the State to provide comment and feedback on impact, sustainability, capacity and timelines related to these possible policy directions. The regional forums will begin in early January and run through February. [CCR (D) 1]
