From SED Press Release on 4/20

The New York State Board of Regents will consider new options to meet high school graduation requirements at its April meeting next week. The Board will discuss creating two new pathways to meeting graduation requirements: one focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), and one centered on Career and Technology Education (CTE). “The jobs created in today’s economy demand a different skills set,” Regents Chancellor Merryl H. Tisch said. “The Board of Regents has examined possible revision of high school graduation requirements. Our goal is to ensure every student graduates from high school college- and career- ready, but that doesn’t mean one size fits all students. These new pathways to graduation will give students new pathways to economic success. The Regents will look carefully at options that increase flexibility for students without diminishing rigor.”
