New Minimum High School Graduation Requirements

On April 5, 2019, Kentucky’s new minimum high school graduation requirements became law. The changes add “graduation prerequisites” and “graduation qualifiers,” explained below, to ensure students have basic math and reading skills, as well as experiences that can help them be prepared to enter college or the workforce. The new graduation requirements give students the chance to take more classes geared toward their plans after graduation. Freshman in 2019-20 must complete 22 credits (revised list) to graduate as well as one of eight graduation qualifiers. Those entering their freshmen year in 2020-21 and beyond must also complete a graduation prerequisite. The prerequisite requires students to demonstrate basic competency in reading and math in one of three ways before graduation.
Here’s what the changes mean for Kentucky students:
