The State of IN wants students to be prepared for future careers.
Each pathway has slightly different requirements based on what students want to do after high school.
In response, Teresa Meredith, president of the Indiana State Teachers Association, released the following statement: "I am disappointed in the board's vote today". "They will go a long way to ensure our students are truly prepared for success in whatever they choose to pursue after high school".
The plan is to let the students pick a pathway tailored to their interests and abilities.
During these years, the Graduation Pathways Panel recommends schools begin allowing students to opt-in to new standards in lieu of graduation qualifying examinations.
Starting in 2023, students will have to complete coursework and demonstrate employability skills through service or work projects. These new pathways strike the right balance of higher expectations for all students with more individualized options to meet every student's unique needs and goals.
