A graduate profile will be developed, which will include a list of student learning out comes that specify what all students should know and be able to do by the time they graduate from high school. In developing the graduate profile, the four categories of the college and career readiness, 21st century skills framework and developing a culture of student responsibility for their learning should be included.
