Graduation Requirements

  • Understanding what is expected of students helps to plan courses for each year leading to graduation. We will work with each student and their families to best navigate through the requirements while helping students to explore their interests as well.

     

    Multiple Pathways

    Multiple pathways recognize the importance of engaging students in rigorous and relevant academic programs.  The regulations approved in 2015 and 2016 recognize students’ interests in the Arts, Biliteracy (LOTE), Career and Technical Education (CTE), Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS), Humanities, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) by allowing an approved pathway to meet the students’ graduation requirements.

    Under the “4+1” pathway assessment option, students must take and pass four required Regents Exams or Department-Approved Alternative assessments (one in each of the following subjects: English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies) and complete a comparably rigorous pathway to meet the fifth assessment requirement for graduation.
