ESSA--Graduation requirements

Under ESSA, states were given more freedom to design and assess K-12 education. In Virginia, the state came up with the Virginia Profile of a Graduate. It changed graduation requirements to involve less testing, more skills in the real world, like all students must do an internship. Have other states implemented something similar?

That's the kind of thing individual districts may choose to do in my state. Some do and some don't.
