Graduation Requirements – Class of 2019
Temporary Ohio law provided additional graduation options for students in the class of 2018, specifically, students who entered grade 9 between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015. State law does not provide these options to students in the classes of 2019 and beyond. Students in the classes of 2019 and beyond will be expected to satisfy one of the original three pathways to graduation. Information regarding high school graduation requirements and the three pathways can be found here.
