A likely recommendation of a task force studying possible changes to Missouri’s high school curriculum would be one to issue students what are called differentiated diplomas. A differentiated diploma would give college admissions officials or a potential employer more information than the standard diploma provides. It could list such things as proficiency levels mastered, grades, standardized test scores, attendance, even school activities. Jerry Valentine, who heads the Missouri High School Task Force, points out the differentiated diploma would not contain all information – just a summary of information. The panel, itself, hasn’t yet signed off on this as a recommendation. The Task Force’s recommendations will be presented to the State Board of Education this Spring.
