Change Diploma System for Special Education? (KY)

Special education programs identify possible therapies and establish individual instructional goals for students. But when many of those students finish high school, they don’t graduate with a diploma, but a certificate of completion.

“But if you choose that non-academic route, your child when they graduate high school, they do not get a diploma. They get a certificate,” says Democratic Senator Dennis Parrett of Elizabethtown.

“If your child is a senior at Bryan Station High School, and they completed this curriculum that was set out before them, then I believe that they deserve a diploma. It can say alternative diploma. I’m fine with that, but they deserve a diploma. That’s all this is about.”
