Graduation Changes - the State Board of Education adopted an amendment to the Iowa special education rules and Iowa now requires 4-3-3-3 for ALL students earning a high school diploma. This goes into effect May 30, 2018, so it impacts next year's freshman class. Additional tools will be coming from the DE.
