Getting a high school diploma in Kentucky could soon become a little harder as the Kentucky Board of Education is scheduled to vote on Today (Wednesday, October 2) on new minimum high school graduation requirements. The proposed requirements would be a demonstration of college or career readiness, for high school freshmen starting in fall of 2019, and passing new math and reading exams, which would become a requirement for students entering ninth grade in 2020. Interim Commissioner of Education Wayne Lewis says the change is needed to improve student performance across the state. The Kentucky Local Superintendents Advisory Council stated in a letter to the department of education that it did not support for the graduation requirement proposal.
