NYC PUBLIC SCHOOLS GRADUATION PATHWAYS DATA 2021

The Board of Regents approved regulations establishing multiple, comparably rigorous assessment pathways to graduation for all students. The recently approved regulations recognize the importance of engaging students’ interests in rigorous and relevant academic programs in the Arts; Languages other than English (LOTE)/Biliteracy; Career and Technical Education (CTE); Humanities; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); and Career Developmental Occupational Studies (CDOS). The revised regulation allows students to use a passing score on an approved pathway assessment or successful completion of program requirements for the CDOS credential toward meeting the assessment requirements for graduation.

Complete information on the types of diploma credentials which can be earned and the criteria for each.

Additional information on Graduation Pathways can be found on the Curriculum and Instruction site.
