Oklahoma School Officials Talk About Changes to Graduation Requirements

Posted:

ARDMORE, OK--  Oklahoma school officials are voicing their support for a new bill that could affect the requirements for high school students to graduate.

Senate Bill 11 sponsored by State Senator Earl Garrison of Muskogee would allow students to use their scores from the college entrance exam, the ACT,  to replace four of End of Instruction test scores, in respected subject areas. Students must score at least an 18 or higher on the ACT.

Right now students must complete seven exams prior to graduating high school.

Administrators and students we talked to today say they think the proposal is a good idea.
