Students must declare for early graduation by Oct. 1. While end-of-course exams have been phased out of Kentucky’s accountability model, they are still applicable and available for students planning on graduating early.

For the 2018-2019 and 2019- 2020 school years, early graduation students still must reach end-of-course (EOC) benchmarks along with reaching their ACT benchmarks. A guidance document for how to order EOCs for early graduation students will be available soon. Be aware that early graduation must be tied to the student’s Individual Learning Plan.
