This school year, high school seniors will have one additional option to meet graduation requirements if they don’t pass one or more exams in the Subject Area Test Program (SATP) and don’t meet previously approved alternative options. On Friday, March 20, 2015, the State Board of Education today approved a new policy that allows students who are seniors in the 2014-2015 school year to use their end-of-course SATP score with their overall course grade to apply for graduation. Students will qualify for this option if their course grade and test score, when evaluated together, demonstrate adequate mastery of course content.
