Alternate Tests for High School Graduation Requirements

Senate Bill 559 (passed in 2013), Alternate Tests creates certain statutory exemptions to ACE graduation requirements:

If a student scores:
  • 10% above cut scores on ACT or SAT, he/she is exempt from taking EOIs in Algebra II, English III, Geometry and US History.
  • Equal to or above cut scores on AP exams, WorkKeys assessments, CLEP, IB, he/she is exempt from taking EOIs in Algebra II, English III, Geometry and US History. 
Note:  There will be a process to ensure that the exempted test scores will be calculated for teachers in regards to TLE and for schools for reporting on the A-F Report Card.   SDE document for calculations
