Gov. Snyder Signs Laws Changing High School Graduation Requirements

Governor Snyder put his signature on changes to Michigan’s high school graduation requirements.

The two laws signed Wednesday impact math, foreign language, health and physical education classes.

Students will be given more options to meet the algebra II requirement by taking a welding or other career and technical education class.

Plus, students can now meet the two year high school foreign language requirement in kindergarten through eighth grades.

And students can use health and extra-curricular activities toward some health and PE credits.
