Cheney asks state for graduation requirements waiver

Requirement to earn 24 specified credits in order to receive a diploma to begin with class of 2021


The Cheney School District has given the next several graduating classes a reprieve in the number of credit hours they must achieve to earn a diploma.

At the Feb. 14 regular meeting, school board directors voted unanimously to ask the state for a waiver of the Core 24 requirement that seniors achieve 24 specified credits to earn their diploma, and continue operating under the current 23-credit system. The increase in credits was implemented with passage of E2SSB6552 by the state Legislature in 2016, imposing the 24-credit requirement starting with the graduating class of 2019.
