Oregon Graduation Requirements: Administrative Guidelines. Section I.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
Since 1969, the Oregon State Board of Education has undertaken to reverse the trend toward providing a single, rigid program for all students, regardless of their abilities, interests, needs, or learning styles. The new standards focus on the concept of providing students an opportunity to learn and demonstrate specific "survival" competencies. Each district must clarify the point of view of "survival" to its own satisfaction in order to identify the basic skills and abilities that all students should acquire as a result of public schooling. Developing a plan for meeting new State requirements for school graduation is an important task for local school districts. These guidelines suggest practical, economical, and flexible approaches.
