High School students in Indiana will be doing more to graduate in years to come.

The Indiana State Board of Education has approved changes to the state’s high school graduation requirements. The board voted 7-4 to approve new requirements for graduation that include a series of tasks in place of a test, as currently mandated in Indiana high schools.

Under the new requirements, students will have to complete coursework, demonstrate employable skills through service or work projects and show they are ready for post-secondary study through exams that include the SAT and ACT.

The changes were developed by the Graduation Pathways Panel, a SBOE subcommittee, which gathered input from hundreds of stakeholders during 30 combined hours of discussion over the past year.

The new requirements for Indiana’s high school students will begin with the 2019 freshman class.
