Why Do I have to take WorkKeys?
The State of Alaska has repealed the High School Graduation Qualifying Exam (HSGQE) and replaced this requirement with a career/college readiness requirement.
In order to graduate with a diploma, every Alaska student must:
1. Complete required coursework by the graduation deadline.
2. Comply with the career/college readiness requirement (i.e.: WorkKeys).
