For Idaho's graduating seniors, the coronvairus pandemic has put a lot of uncertainty into what their education looks like moving forward.

That's why the Idaho State Board of education has created resources explaining recent changes to high school graduation requirements and how credit will be awarded.

“Students, particularly high school juniors and seniors, have a lot of questions about certain graduation requirements and how credit will be awarded for their dual credit and Advanced Placement (AP) courses,” State Board President Debbie Critchfield said. “The Board has tried to be nimble in addressing issues brought on by the disruption to the school year and this short video is one of many tools we have developed to inform our students and their families of these changes and what they mean for them.”

“We’ve also added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to the State Board’s website designed to provide more detailed information to young people who are planning their futures,” Critchfield said. “We’ll continue to update these FAQs as warranted and to use various platforms including social media to keep our students and their parents informed.”
