Ed Affairs Committee Presentation September 2020
With co-chair Pamela Henry presiding, the Educational Affairs Committee convened over Zoom on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020. CSD Director of Secondary Education Charlene Collins presented on the “Five Pathways to Graduation.” Ms. Collins spoke of the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Act 158 of 2018, which provided a blueprint for the graduation pathways but did not include the Keystone Exam cut scores for pathways 2 - 5. As of this spring, PDE released the cut scores and detailed the expanded pathways 2-5 for students to meet the new graduation requirements starting with the Class of 2022. A one-page explainer document has been released to the community so that students and their families will have a better understanding of the alternative ways in which to meet the graduation requirements. The next Educational Affairs committee meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 6:30 p.m.
