MATTERS REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
Raising College and Career Readiness for Adults Using Multiple Pathways to a NYS High School Equivalency Diploma – The Committee was provided an update on what actions have been taken thus far after exploring multiple pathways to a High School Equivalency Diploma. The Committee was also provided with recommendations on a number of additional actions to ensure that adult learners have multiple options for rigorous and reliable high school equivalency assessments in the most cost effective manner. The Committee was asked to decide if the Department should issue a Request for Proposal to identify one or more State assessments that would lead to a High School Equivalency Diploma so that multiple pathways are available. The Committee voted in favor of the recommendation to issue the Request for Proposal.
