Providing flexibility in high school graduation requirements and supporting student success during the transition to a federal every student succeeds act-compliant accountability system (MacEwen, Dolan, Appleton)

Finds that locally directed intervention strategies,
including transition courses, opportunities to take more
diverse assessments, dual credit courses, and more sustained
focus on providing college and career guidance through
students' high school and beyond plans, would better prepare
students for postsecondary college and career opportunities.
Declares an intent to:
(1) Move the statewide required
assessment to the tenth grade for reading, writing, and
mathematics; and
(2) Expand alternatives to the assessment when a student
does not meet standard on the tenth grade assessment.
