JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There are multiple pathways to obtain a high school diploma.

That's the idea that Duval County Schools Superintendent Dr. Nikolai Vitti wants to present to the Florida House K-12 Education Committee in Tallahassee on Wednesday.

Dr. Vitti, along with superintendents from Hillsborough and Miami-Dade counties, will talk about expanding the path to a high school diploma through options such as career technical education, changing the way end-of-course exams are weighted and more flexibility through digital content.

"We support the legislature's emphasis on the need for students to demonstrate the acquisition of college-ready skills before receiving a high school diploma," Dr. Vitti said in a release. "Yet, we recognize that post-secondary success will look differently for each student, so we must offer multiple pathways tailored to students' individual talents and interests to achieve this goal for 100% of our students. Life after high school looks differently for every child, and our diplomas must reflect that or we will lose their interest."

Vitti will also talk to the House committee about class sizes.
