CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming high school students will now be able to pass a course assessment in lieu of receiving a passing grade as part of a number of changes the State Board of Education has made to graduation requirements.

The Board of Education on Friday voted to approve a revised set of state high school graduation requirements. The changes were approved as emergency rules, meaning they can take effect before a public comment period.

Other changes include eliminating the requirement to list proficiency tiers on diplomas.

The changes are part of an earlier legislation that requires the state board and districts to evaluate high school graduation requirements and to make sure that schools are in compliance with high school graduation standards.
