OLYMPIA - Governor Chris Gregoire signed into law a measure that will extend the date to 2013 by which students must meet the state math and science standards for high school graduation. Students must meet the requirements through the Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL) or an alternative assessment.

Students that do not meet the standard are required to take more math credits. The bill also provides for additional alternative assessments by which students can demonstrate they meet standards. Previously, the requirement would have been to meet math standards by the class of 2008 and science standards by the class of 2010.
