The 2015 Legislative Session could be one of the most challenging in decades. The reason is education funding.
The Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction has created materials (including a short video) that explain the basics of education funding and the State Supreme Court case McCleary v. State of Washington: If you have any questions or comments about the documents, please email

Graduation Requirements
(Date Posted 12/3/2014)

In 2006, the Legislature directed the Washington State Board of Education (SBE) to revise the definition of the purpose and expectations of a public high school diploma. In 2010, after extensive committee work, stakeholder input, and research the SBE adopted the 24-credit Career and College Ready Graduation Requirements. These new graduation requirements will take effect for the graduating class of 2019 (the 9th grade class entering in the fall of 2015).

The 24-credit framework was designed to be both rigorous and flexible. The pathway for most students will keep all postsecondary options open, including meeting the college admission requirements for entry into a public four-year institution or pursuing a program of study in a two-year institution or apprenticeship. The framework is also flexible enough to accommodate a program of study leading to a professional or technical certificate or degree through a skills center or Career and Technical Education program, or military service.

For Shelton students, the new requirements will represent an increase in total credits required for graduation from 22 to 24. In addition, there will be an increase in credits required in several core areas including science and the arts. For students planning to attend a 4-year college, 2 credits of world language will also be required. There will be new flexibility in some areas (e.g., the third year of high school math is currently algebra 2 or an approved alternative – the third year of math will become a math credit that complements the individual student’s personalized coursework pathway).

The Shelton School District Board of Directors, in collaboration with the interim superintendent and staff from the buildings, is currently studying the new graduation requirements and will be holding public meetings as they work on updating the district policy and procedures to align to the new state requirements. A draft policy is expected in February, 2015.
