Proposed Indiana Graduation Pathways (Counselor Talk, November 7 2017):
The Graduation Pathways Panel has posted their final recommendations to be presented to the State Board of Education in early December. Note that the recommendation has changed to take effect with the class of 2023 (as opposed to 2022).
- From Counselor Talk, April 2018:
- The Board is planning on approving guidance for the Pathways at the July  meeting, which competes with the new timeline the legislature established for 2018 graduates. There is a draft of the guidance document that is circulating now and that the Board will do a work session for in May. While this document will change, many of the guidelines for PBL/SBL/WBL – the design principles for experiences, courses/experiences that count, and experiences that do not count – will most likely remain. Please email Alicia Kielmovitch [Indiana State Board staff] if you’d like to see this draft document.
There is still much to be determined regarding the Graduation Pathways. Much of this is dependent on the outcome of the legislative session, as well as the guidance being developed by the State Board of Education. FAQs were developed by the State Board of Education and are available here. Additionally, there was a memo regarding the Locally Created Pathways presented to the State Board at yesterday’s meeting. This memo is available here. If you wish to hear what was presented to the State Board yesterday, it will be available soon on video here: https://www.in.gov/sboe/2427.htm. It was the very last thing on the agenda so you can skip all the way to the end once it’s posted. The discussion yesterday was for the Locally Created Pathway criteria to be presented to the State Board for a vote at the April meeting. Stay tuned.

- Q: Does anyone have a form they have developed to track students’ requirements with the new graduation pathways? Also, has anyone figured out a way to track in PowerSchool? A: This represents my first effort but there is still a lot of work today. Enjoy. Poach whatever part you want. Graduation Audit Form
- There is much to still be determined, but keep in mind Graduation Pathways are different from our CTE Pathways (we’ve actually recommended re-titling to eliminate the confusion). Counselortalk, March 2018

- For a senior high school student who is deceased prior to graduation/HEA 1384 is summarized below:
- School Corporation shall issue diploma for a deceased student at parent request, if the student:
- died while enrolled in grade 12 of the school corporation; and
- was academically eligible or on track to meet diploma requirements.
This would not be considered a graduate for reporting purposes
