  • Writing portfolio added to CHS graduation policy

    Staff Report

    Beginning this school year, Campbellsville High graduates must be able to write well in order to graduate.

    At its September meeting, the Campbellsville Independent School Board approved a request from the high school to add a writing portfolio requirement to its graduation policy.

    Because the change also requires an amendment of Board policy, final approval won't be given until a second reading at the Board's next meeting on Oct. 20.
