Legislative Brief

The Move on When Ready program, created by the Tennessee General Assembly in 2011, allows students to graduate from high school significantly early under an abbreviated course load, provided they meet certain academic requirements, such as a 3.2 grade point average (GPA). It differs from districts’ traditional early graduation programs that do not allow students to waive graduation requirements. This report compares the program since its inception to the more traditional early graduate programs in the state.
