Some districts want career diploma waivers

This week, the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education accepted requests from 19 school systems asking to opt out of the newly-created career diploma program.

According to this press release, the waivers were approved at a special BESE meeting called to discuss the criteria for the career diploma program.

Some decisions about criteria were made at the meeting, but most were postponed until September, giving the State Department of Education staff time to study the policy issues involved, and to meet with "stakeholders" about coursework, curriculum and assessment requirements.
