Secondary School Regulations Reference Guide. Updated June 2018
Rhode Island Department of Education
The Rhode Island 2020 Vision for Education defines an ideal Rhode Island graduate to be "one who is well prepared for postsecondary education, work, and life. He or she can think critically and collaboratively and can act as a creative, self-motivated, culturally competent learner and citizen." The updated Secondary School Regulations, which go into effect in the 2017-2018 school year (for the graduating class of 2021 and beyond), are intended to encourage all schools to further develop a system of opportunity by which every student can reflect the vision of the ideal Rhode Island graduate. The following three ideas provide the basis for that intent: (1) graduation by proficiency; (2) personalization; and (3) multiple pathways. The primary purpose of this reference guide is to provide clarification to educators, students, and families regarding the regulatory changes adopted in the 2016 Secondary School Regulations. [For the 2017 reference guide, see ED572912.]
