Graduation Requirements Task Force Seeks Community Feedback
The Kansas State Graduation Requirements Task Force needs your feedback.
At the June 2021 Kansas State Board of Education meeting, Commissioner of Education Randy Watson announced the establishment of a Graduation Requirements Task Force, which include members of the State Board of Education, business leaders, curriculum directors, high school principals, counselors, teachers, KSHSAA, local boards of education and superintendents, charged with examining graduation requirements in Kansas from at least three different lenses:
- Additional courses or deletion of courses required for graduation (if any).
- Examination of competencies and multiple ways to show mastery of skills which allow students to move at their own pace and time.
- Examination of any additional requirements in addition to the high school diploma (value-added assets such as industry recognized certificate, college credits, etc.)
