24-Credit Requirement Planning Survey -- Middle School Families

In 2014, the Washington State Board of Education recommended, and the Legislature passed, a bill changing the state’s high school graduation requirements.

The changes, which will start with the class of 2021 (this year’s seventh-graders), include:

1. Earning 24 credits to graduate from high school instead of 21
2. A more extensive High School and Beyond Plan to guide students’ course decisions
3. More flexibility for students to follow a personalized pathway to meet the graduation requirements

Visit our 24-Credit Task Force web page to learn more.

Two committees are investigating how Seattle high schools can meet these requirements in a way that ensures high quality teaching and learning and increased academic engagement and achievement for all students.

Because you have a student (or students) in middle school, the committees would like your feedback on some of the issues related to this change.

-If you have more than one student in middle school, please answer the questions thinking about just one of your students. You may take the survey again for each additional student.
- Elementary families are welcome to take this survey by selecting "elementary" under the middle school building drop-down choices.
- This survey should take five minutes without comments.
- Please complete by March 30, 2016.

Thank you for your time.
