New Steamboat graduation requirements are on table

— The Steamboat Springs School Board will hear proposed changes to the district’s graduation requirements tonight from Marty Lamansky, the assistant high school principal.

Lamansky will present recommendations from the district’s curriculum committee to increase the number of credits needed for graduation to 25 from 23.

The proposed changes in­­clude the addition of 0.5 credits in math, 0.5 credits of personal financial literacy and 1 credit of world languages. Also, the number of language arts credits would remain at 4, but a world literature credit requirement would be added.

The School Board could provide feedback about the proposed changes at tonight’s meeting. The School Board could consider adopting the changes in December.

Also tonight, Superintendent Shalee Cunningham is scheduled to present a report to show whether the elementary schools are progressing relative to district policy and a review of the district’s current curriculum and instructional strategies used in science.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. at Steamboat Springs Middle School. The board will hear comments from the public at 7 p.m. Adjournment is set for 8:30 p.m.
