Maryland State Board of Education Decision on High School Graduation Requirements

The State Board of Education recently released the minutes from the October 28 State Board of Education Meeting, documenting that the State Board will allow the State Superintendent to draft amendments to the regulations for High School Graduation which would provide that all students who take the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for Colleges and Careers tests in Algebra I and English 10 in years 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 will not be required to pass the tests in order to graduate high school.
