SUBJECT:

Reprint of 2+4 in 2004, 2005, and 2006 Brochures

 

 

The Virginia Department of Education has reprinted the 2+4 in 2004, 2005, and 2006 brochure that was originally distributed in January of this year. The brochure is designed to help students and parents better understand the commonwealths graduation requirements.

Reprints of the brochure will be distributed beginning the week of December 8 to high schools and combined schools in sufficient quantity to provide each student in grades 10-12 with a brochure. Deliveries are expected to be completed by December 19. Please advise principals to anticipate delivery of the brochures so they can be distributed to students in a timely manner.

The title of the brochure, 2+4 in 2004, 2005, and 2006 refers to the combination of units of verified credit required for a Standard Diploma (two units in English and four of the students own choosing) during the transition period covering the graduating classes of 2004, 2005, and 2006.

The brochure also provides information about the Advanced Studies Diploma and the answers to frequently asked questions about graduation.

 

 

Thank you for your assistance in getting these into the hands of students and parents.

The brochure may be viewed or downloaded from the department website at this address: http://www.pen.k12.va.us/2plus4in2004/2plus4gradinfo.pdf
