Relay requires more from its students than simply completing the curriculum and moving on to new material. Relay students must demonstrate that they have mastery of the knowledge and techniques they have learned at Relay and are using these assets to successfully lead their PK–12 students to meaningful and measurable achievement gains. Depending on the enrolled program, students may graduate with a master’s degree and/or complete an educator-certification program. To these ends, in order to complete a Relay program and/or graduate, students are required to:
- Lead PK–12 students to the equivalent of at least one year’s worth of academic gains (Only applicable to degree-granting programs);
- Earn a minimum grade of 70% (or a C-) in all courses in their programs of study;
- Earn a cumulative 2.7 grade point average (GPA). Overall GPA is a weighted cumulative average of all course grades in the program to date.
See the State-Specific Policies and Disclosures for additional information on professional-licensure requirements and eligibility for students enrolled in programs leading to educator certification.
