WHEELING, W.Va. — A recent change in graduation requirements for West Virginia’s high school seniors should give students the opportunity to take more technical education electives, according to local school officials.
“The only required credits being removed from the current policy are two additional elective credits,” said Jessica Hall, spokeswoman for the West Virginia Department of Education. “Counties have the ability to increase credits beyond the minimum set forth. … This change will allow counties the flexibility for scheduling, increasing required courses and/or increasing graduation credit requirements as needed.”
