SOUTH CAROLINA (WJBF) – Students with disabilities will soon be able to graduate with an “employability credential”.
The law will showcase their abilities, and help students succeed beyond high school.
Currently, students with disabilities who do not earn the mandatory 24 credits, receive a state certificate of attendance.
But advocates say a uniform credential is needed so employers can recognize their worth.
The legislation takes effect in the 2018 to 2019 school year.
