Senate Roll Call 169 on
2006 House Bill 5606: Mandate high school graduation requirements

To prescribe high school graduation requirements for public schools and charter schools. These would include four year-long courses each in English and mathematics (including Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry); three each in science and social science (including biology and chemistry or physics); two in a foreign language (beginning with students entering ninth grade in 2009); one in health and physical education; one in fine arts or music; and at least one in certain electives specified in the bill. This is essentially what the Senate passed in Senate Bill 1124. This vote sets up a House-Senate conference committee to work out the differences between the two bills as originally passed by each body. Primarily, the Senate but not the House proposes two years of foreign language study, and the House makes it easier to opt out of Algebra II.
