Tiffany Benson, assistant superintendent of Educational Services, brought a proposal to change the graduation requirement for social studies to the Travis School Board.
Her proposal was to change the social studies course from its current schedule to give students the option of either taking one semester of American Government or one full-year course of it.
“The idea is to align with the California graduation requirements,” Benson said. “This way it gives students the option of doing one semester or one year of American Government.”
