“… alternative methods for satisfying certain public high school graduation requirements, including the use of individual graduation committees.”
“… shall establish an individual graduation committee at the end of or after the student’s 11th grade year to determine whether the student may qualify to graduate as provided by this section”

  • Identify potential graduation committee members and consider the schedule for meetings.
