The Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC) graduation requirements are flexible and provide various ways to make all students career and college ready. The personal curriculum (PC) is a tool to modify the MMC requirements for both general education and special education students, individualizing a student’s high school experience.

This session focuses on:

  • Defining the 18 required credits of the MMC
  • Explaining the modifications that are allowed through a PC
  • Providing guidance on how to make such decisions appropriately, based on a student’s post-school plans. Additionally, PC scenarios will be discussed, and examples shown to see how courses that are not needed for individual students can potentially be removed, allowing better options to be put in place.

This event will include time for Q&A as well as time during lunch (11:00-12:00) to process the information with your own team.
