Utah Administrative Code Rule R277-705-6: Career Development Credentials


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Policies and Programs

“The Utah State Board of Education gave final approval to administrative rule R277-705 Secondary School Completion Diploma in December after a subcommittee of educators and advocates from around the state surveyed stakeholders and recommended the changes. As amended, the rule provides a standard for awarding what will be known as a “career development credential.”

The intent of the change is to increase opportunities for students with disabilities to meaningfully participate in their educational programs, while acquiring the necessary skills to gain employment post high school. The credential is intended to be earned in conjunction with a regular high school diploma or alternate diploma and does not replace either.”
