The 2019 Legislature required school districts to provide access to a statewide equivalency from a list of approved courses and transcribe those courses as meeting academic credit and fulfilling a graduation requirement. Until September 1, 2021 districts must provide high school students with the opportunity to access at least one career and technical education course that is considered a statewide equivalency course. On or after September 1, 2021, statewide equivalency course offered by the district or assessed at a skill center must be offered for academic credit. A school district with fewer than two thousand students may apply for a waiver to the superintendent of public instruction.
