Mastery Credit Information

As a way of demonstrating that students have mastered the content and skills necessary to fulfill the district’s Vision of the Graduate, students in the class of 2023 and beyond will be required to earn one credit through personalized study, described as a mastery-based credit. This is a state-wide graduation requirement that all students must complete.

Mastery-based learning has been developed to ensure that students are prepared for college, career, and civic life through multiple and flexible pathways.
