FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Schools across the state are continuing to make changes so students can meet new graduation requirements.

This year's 8th graders will be the first class required to meet Graduation Pathways.

Schools are still trying to figure out what that means for their students and the state is still making tweaks to the requirements.

However, for Northwest Allen County Schools, it just means students will have more options in their education.

"The important thing for us is to understand the rules of the new graduation requirements themselves. It's a 50+ page document and just making sure we have looked at it and we know it well enough that we are taking every advantage we can to benefit our students," said Brandon Bitting, Carroll High School principal.

Older students could have the option to opt into Graduation Pathways.
