Establishes the Show Me Success Diploma Program as an alternative graduation pathway for high school students
December 1, 2020
Requires DESE to create an alternative pathway to early graduation between 10th and 12th grades. If a student earns the diploma the student may elect to remain enrolled in the school and participate in extracurricular activities until the end of the 12th grade year. If a student enrolls in postsecondary education, the district may continue to receive state aid for the student until the end of the 12th grade year, but 90% of the amount received will be deposited in the student’s MOST account.
