ASD recently outlined new graduation requirements based on the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s guidance. While there are now a number of pathways to graduation that students can choose, taking the SAT may fulfill a graduation requirement for the class of 2023. Encourage your child to speak with their guidance counselor to learn more about different pathways to graduation!
