So now they're saying you gotta have 24 credits to graduate high school (it used to be 20 credits, but the suits had a meetin'). The new rule was supposed to start for the graduating class of 2019, but some schools got a waiver to put it off by 2 years. So that means that many of today's sophomores are not on track to graduate at their current credit rate. This includes students at Southridge, Kamiakin and Kennewick High.
