INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - Indiana students may see a more specific focus on post-secondary skills.

The Graduation Pathway Panel approved new graduation requirements for the state.

They transition away from an end of course assessments, or ECA's.

Instead, students would need to demonstrate employability skills.

They would also need to show academic or career readiness through testing or certification.

The State Board of Education will consider the recommendations in December.

If approved, the Pathway requirements would be implemented in the 2019/2020 school year.
