A Comparison of Graduation Requirements.
Pankaskie, Sara; Webb, Kris
This paper discusses the national movement toward increasing high school graduation requirements and the development of alternatives to the standard high school diploma for students with disabilities. Findings from a review of state policies indicate: (1) 38 states and territories apply some graduation requirements to students with disabilities; (2) 9 states require all students regardless of their disability to meet all requirements for a standard diploma; (3) 9 states reported that students with mild disabilities must meet all requirements for a diploma; (4) 11 states reported that graduation requirements for all students with disabilities are determined locally, guided by the students' individualized education programs (IEPs); and (5) six states permit requirements for students with severe disabilities to be determined or waived by the students' IEPs. A chart illustrates graduation diploma options for students with disabilities in Florida. (Contains 16 references.) (CR)
