Testing appeals schools

Students who did not meet state testing requirements for graduation now have another way to receive their diplomas.

If a student fails to meet state testing requirements and is denied a diploma from his or her school district, the students can appeal the decision to the state Board of Education. The board approved a rule Thursday that those appeals would be automatically approved if the student has been accepted to certain state colleges and universities.

The waiver will be available to students accepted to schools designated as “selective” by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Those schools are:

• Northeastern State University

• Oklahoma Baptist University

• Oklahoma Christian University

• Oklahoma City University

• Oklahoma State University

• Oral Roberts University

• Southeastern Oklahoma State University

• Southern Nazarene University

• Southwestern Oklahoma State University

• University of Central Oklahoma

• University of Oklahoma

• University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma

• University of Tulsa
