10 Graduation Starting in 9 th grade, the tests will count towards graduation The OGT will be replaced with these tests starting with this year’s freshmen As one of the three pathways to a diploma, students can accumulate their scores from end-of-course exams. The higher a student scores on any end-of-course exam, the more graduation points he or she earns: Advanced Level = 5 points Accelerated Level = 4 points Proficient Level = 3 points Basic Level = 2 points Limited Level = 1 point If a student reaches 18 graduation points overall, he or she becomes eligible for a diploma.

11 9 th Graders: Class of 2018 First class to take the tests which count towards graduation Students that score below proficient on an exam may retake it after they receive some extra help on the material. Students that score proficient or higher on an end of course exam can retake exams only if, once they take all the exams, they have not met the minimum graduation points to graduate.
