On October 20th, the New York State Board of Regents will be voting on a proposal to move forward on Multiple Pathways to graduation. The proposal is an effort to ensure that all students graduate high school able to succeed in postsecondary programs of study and the workforce; that they understand and demonstrate citizenship skills; and that they may meaningfully contribute to the economic and democratic well-being of our society. Anticipated is the adoption of a Pathway model that allows students the option to graduate by pursuing academics and personal interests through the selection of a Pathway in either CTE, the Arts, Humanities, STEM or an additional Regents exam.
