    Graduation Pathways Panel Recommendations 

    The River Forest Community School Corporation and Board of Trustees oppose the current recommendations for Graduation Pathways. If you have heard about the pathways, you know that the State Board of Education is pushing this concept through without getting much input from schools, parents, or other concerned entities. 

    If this initiative were enacted today, the state graduation rate would drop by more than 25% and River Forest would move from 80% graduation rate to 47%.

    We share concerns with Dr. McCormack (the State Superintendent of Public Education), superintendents, principals and teachers across the state. It is our opinion that the State Board should host public forums across the state – without your help, however, they may vote to approve the current pathways as early as December 6th.

    We believe that the current proposals are detrimental and discriminatory towards special education students, second language learners, and students of poverty. Although we support some areas, we believe that some of the benchmarks are detrimental to our student’s economic futures. 

    • We have concern with the obtainment of the amount of dual credits, advanced placement, and CTE credits when we have a severe teaching shortage that can compromise a districts ability to provide highly qualified staff to teach these areas.
    • We have concern for our special education honors students that have earned a high GPA and college credit but may require special accommodations for the SAT and ACT. We have found that it is difficult working with the College Board in obtaining the accommodations. When these accommodations are obtained, it is difficult to arrange these for 2nd and 3rd examination opportunities for these students.
    • We also believe that the career pathways have a negative impact on special education students and the school districts.
