Understanding Diploma and Credential Options for Students with Disabilities @ Liverpool Central School District Office, Board of Education Room
Feb 28 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Thinking about what you want to do after high school is exciting. Preparation for that journey is key while you are still in school.  Parents/guardians and students need to learn the requirements for graduation. A high school diploma is achieved through mastering state academic standards, passing required tests and courses and earning credits. In this training, we will explain the different requirements for the Regents and Local Diploma. We will also discuss how students can use their strengths to achieve a diploma through multiple pathways. We will explore the importance of career readiness skills and the credentials available. This training is sure to help you navigate which options are the best for your child.
