Acceleration Options in Public Education

It requires school districts to adopt policies for early graduation upon the completion of 24 credit hours, the creation of career-themed training courses, and it revises provisions relating to articulated acceleration mechanisms and dual enrollment programs. The Act also requires a comprehensive student progression plan to include information on accelerated educational options.
