It’s official. There are new requirements to earn a high school diploma in Kansas starting in 2027.

The Topeka Capital-Journal’s Rafael Garcia reports after more than a year of discussions, the Kansas State Board of Education approved a new set of graduation requirements that students will need to meet before being granted a diploma. The board requires students to earn a minimum of 21 units though many local school boards require more.
