HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS !!!!!!
Please be advised to ensure adequate time for transition to the new assessments the NJDOE is extending the transition period for the graduation requirements that were identified in the September 30, 2014, memorandum to now include students in the class of 2019.
We anticipate that we will announce final ‘cut scores’ for the PARCC assessments in October. Below is an updated list of options for demonstrating graduation proficiency for the classes of 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, incorporating updated ‘cut scores’ for the substitute competency assessments to account for some of the changes anticipated in the PSAT/SAT and ACT programs.
The Study Commission on the Use of Statewide Assessments will be making recommendations shortly regarding graduation requirements for the class of 2020 and thereafter.
