SBOE ACTION: At its work session, the Board approved a resolution that is far from definitive but nevertheless gives some guidance based on past practice as to advanced courses. Specifically, the resolution states:
"While the final decisions regarding graduation requirements can only be made by formal rulemaking, the Board's past practice has been to consider Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses as advanced courses."

During its work session, the SBOE also invited teachers and school districts to give input on how best to determine advanced courses. The SBOE has a lot on its plate and welcomes input from the experts in the classrooms!
