Web-based Project Graduation Credit Calculator

 

The Virginia Department of Education has completed development of a Web-based Project Graduation Credit Calculator in support of Governor Warners Project Graduation. The calculator is a tool to assist students, parents, and school counselors in determining a students progress toward earning the standard and verified units of credit necessary for graduation. Student transcript information can be entered into the calculator and a report will be generated that details how many standard and verified units of credit have been earned and may still need to be earned to satisfy Virginias requirements for graduation.

 

The Web-based Project Graduation Credit Calculator will be available, effective February 2, 2004, on the Virginia Department of Educations Project Graduation Web-site. The link for this site is http://www.pen.k12.va.us/2plus4in2004/index.shtml.
