24-Credit Graduation Requirement Task Force applications due

Seattle Public Schools is seeking parents, staff and students to serve on a 24-Credit Graduation Requirement Task Force. The State Board of Education has granted SPS a two-year waiver of the new 24 credit requirement. The graduating class of 2021 (today’s sixth graders) must earn 24 credits, but until then the state will continue to require 20 credits, while SPS requires 21 credits.

Most SPS high schools have a six-period day, so the new requirement would leave no room to recover credits for students who may fail a course, or for those who want to take additional elective courses. The task force will recommend revisions to high school schedules, graduation policy and credit-hour requirements.

Send an email expressing interest by Feb. 20, 2015, to Erin Stoen, Director of College and Career Readiness, at emstoen@seattleschools.org.
