State law introduced new, long-term requirements for the class of 2023 and beyond. Students will complete their required courses and take the required state tests. Students will now demonstrate competency in the foundational areas of English language arts and mathematics or through alternative options, including College Credit Plus, career-focused activities or military enlistment. Students also will demonstrate readiness for their post-high school paths by earning two diploma seals that allow them to demonstrate important foundational and well-rounded academic and technical knowledge, professional skills, social and emotional competencies, and leadership and reasoning skills. These important sets of knowledge, skills and dispositions are necessary for high school graduates to be successful in the workplace, college, the military or other self-sustaining professions.
