Governor Inslee signed into law an agreement that provides students who have not met standard on statewide assessments a pathway to graduation. For students in the graduating classes of 2014 through 2017, the state has waived the state assessment graduation requirement. 

North Kitsap students in the graduating classes of 2014-2017 who did not graduate and believe they have met all other graduation requirements may be eligible for the waiver to receive their diploma. Please contact the counseling office of the last school you attended to inquire about the waiver. 

Kingston High School: (360) 396-3333 or (360) 396-3313 

North Kitsap High School: (360) 396-3131 

Parent Assisted Learning: (360) 396-3575 

High schools are currently working on contacting students who were not eligible to graduate in the years listed above. 

House Bill 2224 moves English language arts and math assessments for high school from the 11th grade to the 10th grade beginning in spring of 2018. This provides students with more time, interventions and supports to help them meet learning standards. Under this new law, students will have additional pathways to demonstrate proficiency if they do not meet standard on the state assessments. 

“As a state, we will no longer be directing all of our students down a single pathway. Our students are all different and have very different needs,” State Superintendent Reykal stated. “We should be celebrating those differences and aligning them with college and career options that best prepare them for whatever postsecondary path they choose.” 

In North Kitsap we believe that with the other graduation requirements and rigorous coursework that our teachers and schools provide, this change will help remove barriers to student success. We have additional requirements that we feel have prepared our students to become competent, creative, compassionate and contributing citizens.
