Summary of Performance- Focus on Results Article - March 2011
The Michigan Legislature has provided an opportunity for students to modify specific State of Michigan Graduation requirements. This individualized credit requirement and/or content expectation modificaiton is called a Personal Curriculum (PC). The majority of students wil exit high school with a diploma without the help of a PC, but for some students a PC can provide the modifications necessary for them to earn a high school diploma. A personal curriculum may be requested for one of four reasons:
- Students who are interested in earning additional credits in math, science, English language arts, or foreign languages.
- Students who demonstrate a need to reduce the Algebra II requirement in the Michigan Merit Curriculum.
- Students transferring from out-of-state or nonpublic schools after completing two years of high school.
- Students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
