MCAS DRRHS 2021-2022

MCAS Graduation Requirements by Grade At-A-Glance

Seniors (Class of 2022) Requirements and Options

  1. Do not take the MCAS Assessments at all. Use your coursework, passing grades in ELA and math, to satisfy your CD (Competency Determination). If you have not taken the MCAS ELA and Math, you will not be eligible for the Adams Scholarship or Koplik Award. If you want to qualify, you need to take the MCAS assessments.

  2. If you have not taken MCAS ELA and Math at all, and you want to qualify for the Adams Scholarship, you should take the ELA and Math in November. If you wait until March to retest, you will not have the results in time for your college decision.

  3. If you took the MCAS but your scores were not high enough to qualify for the Koplik Award, you may take the tests again in November. You will be able to use your highest score to qualify for the Koplik Certificate of Mastery Award, but only your first exam scores will be used to qualify for the Adams Scholarship.

Juniors (Class of 2023) Requirements and Options

  1. If you took the MCAS in May, you met the score requirement for graduation, and you are satisfied with your scores, you are all set.

Passing MCAS ELA and Math (but not Science) are GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS for the Class of 2023. Please see your school counselor, Mrs. Shillan or Mrs. DeCecco if you are unsure if your name is on the list.

  3. If you took the MCAS but your scores were not high enough to qualify for the Koplik Award, you may take the tests again in November.
