Washington Island High School freshmen will see a small change in their graduation requirements next year. The school board decided Thursday to increase the mathematics and science credit requirements from two credits to three. Superintendent Tim Raymond says the total number of credits students need to graduate will remain the same.
The district is looking ahead at mandates that may be coming down from the state within the next few years and wanted to get a jump start on preparing the students.
This change will take place hand-in-hand with the district’s official switch to expeditionary learning, full day 5-year-old kindergarten and the addition of 4-year-old kindergarten.
