MSBA continues its Top 10 list of items we think will have the biggest impact on schools. Running Monday through Friday for the next couple of weeks — we’ll fill you in on our Top 10. And if anyone wants the entire analysis, just click on the MSBA Legislative Summary link below.

No. 5: Students can receive credit equivalencies for graduation requirements

New legislation allows students more flexibility in meeting graduation requirements, such as:

  • The ability to take an agricultural science or career and technical education credit to meet graduation requirements in science.
  • Taking a computer science credit to fulfill a math graduation requirement.
  • Taking a Project Lead the Way credit to fulfill a science OR math requirement.

See all of the details in MSBA’s 2015  Legislative Summary. Take a look at page 9.
