What is Early Graduation?
The Early Graduation regulation is a result of Senate Bill 61
(2013) and is a companion to Senate Bill 97 (2013). To summarize the
regulation, beginning in 2014-2015, Early Graduation will be possible for
students who intend to progress through high school on an accelerated timeline
and graduate college ready in three years or less of high school or age 18.
Early Graduation is a deliberate pathway for students that wish
to move on when ready, receive a diploma from the district and be eligible for
acceptance into Kentucky public universities and non-profit independent
colleges and universities. The regulation provides a financial scholarship,
known as the Early Graduation Certificate, to support this action.
