Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) proposes updates to the Board of Education Approved Courses to Satisfy Graduation Requirements for the Standard, Advanced Studies, and Modified Standard Diplomas in Virginia Public Schools document. The proposed changes, found in Attachment A, include the following: updating the title of the document and removing content specific to students that have aged out; updating School Courses for the Exchange of Data (SCED) codes used to identify courses in which students are enrolled; adding courses that satisfy graduation requirements; adding a section that addresses frequently asked questions about awarding credit in the area of English; clarifying and updating language regarding state/federal testing and state graduation requirements; deleting unnecessary or outdated content; and improving accuracy, readability, and formatting. The proposed updates are necessary to ensure appropriate notation of course enrollments in the Master Schedule Collection (MSC) by school divisions and that appropriate credits are used to satisfy graduation requirements, as well as to clarify answers to common questions. This item aligns with Priority 1 of the Virginia Board of Education’s (Board) comprehensive plan to ensure a high-quality learning environment for all students.
