UPDATE ON STATE ASSESSMENTS REQUIRED FOR GRADUATION
In July of 2017 the Washington Legislature changed the state testing requirements for graduation. The major changes are:
- Science Not Needed for Graduation until 2021: Students will not need to pass a science examination to graduate until the class of 2021. Students in grades 5, 8, and 11 will continue to take a state science test, but they will not need to pass it to graduate. Students who did not graduate due to the science assessment are now eligible to graduate.
- High School State Assessment Moved to Grade 10: The state Smarter Balanced Assessment in English Language Arts (Reading, Writing, and Listening) and Math will be administered in grade 10 starting in the 2017-2018 school year.
- Graduation Options for Current Students: Students who do not pass the state examinations will have additional ways to show they are prepared to graduate. More information about these options can be found on the state website here. The Collection of Evidence option has been eliminated.
- It's not too late to graduate! Students in the classes of 2014 through 2017 who were not able to graduate due to not passing state tests in English Language Arts or Math may be eligible for a no-cost state graduation appeal. Click here for more information.
- State Assessment Pathways: A chart prepared by the state assessment office showing which students need to take which assessments can be found here.
