Proposed Graduation Requirement Changes
REGENTS CONSIDERING CHANGES IN GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS:
At its December 2010 meeting The Regents College and Career Readiness Working Group discussed potential revisions to the New York State graduation requirements. The goals of these discussions are to make the requirements more effective both as a mechanism for maximizing all students' educational potential and also as a signal to higher education institutions and employers that New York's high school graduates are college- and career-ready. As a first step toward achieving these goals, the Regents have created a College and Career Readiness Survey which focuses on three topics: College and Career Readiness Frameworks, Necessary Skills and Knowledge for College and Workforce Success, and New York State Graduation Requirements.
