State law has introduced new, permanent graduation requirements for the classes of 2021 and beyond. Preliminary guidance and resources now are available at the Ohio Department of Education links below.
Students in the classes of 2021 and 2022 have the option to meet the requirements of one of Ohio’s original three pathways to graduation or meet the new permanent requirements for the classes of 2023 and beyond.
Students in the classes of 2023 and beyond must meet the new requirements outlined in this preliminary guidance document, which offers an overview of changes to Ohio’s state testing system and high school graduation requirements.
Also available are student handouts for the classes of 2021 and 2022 and the classes of 2023 and beyond. Finally, districts will find an overview of the graduation requirements and options by class year.
Department staff members are working to develop additional guidance, tools and resources to help schools and districts implement the new graduation requirements. Watch for more information in the months to come.
