New Graduation Requirements Rolling Out

At the November 17 Board meeting, the Board of Education heard an update on the implementation of new graduation requirements that go into effect for the Class of 2021 (this year’s eighth-graders). The board approved Policy IKF in May, and the Graduation Requirements Implementation Team has since focused on generating broad awareness of the new requirements among DPS employees, families and community members. A principal advisory group is meeting twice a month to provide input on critical areas of consideration for successful implementation. The full report of the implementation activities is available here.
