INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana State Board of Education has approved policy guidance for new graduation guidelines for the state's high schools.

Following Wednesday's 10-0 vote, the guidance for Graduation Pathways will be used by the Indiana Department of Education and schools across the state. It includes information on how to complete Indiana's new diploma requirements and how to make the most of internships and other experiential learning.

The board in December approved Graduation Pathways, which is designed to ensure Indiana students graduate from high school with a broad awareness of career interests and options; a strong foundation of academic and technical skills; and demonstrable employability skills.

An aim is to make sure students are ready to enter the workforce, earn a college degree or industry-recognized credential, or enlist in the military.
