The state has eliminated a state graduation requirement for students to continue to take an annual math assessment while also earning two credits of math after the 10th grade.
Now, the students in the classes of 2009 through 2012 who do not pass the high school math test on their first attempt can meet the math graduation requirement by earning two math credits after 10th grade. Those students are no longer required to also take a math assessment every year. The change does not remove the requirement for students to take the math assessment in the 10th grade. Beginning with the class of 2013, all students still must pass a math assessment or satisfy a state-approved alternative to be eligible to graduate.
