The technology graduation requirement for high school set forth by the EGUSD Board of Education requires the student to demonstrate a basic keyboarding proficiency of 25 WPM, using the home row. This proficiency is assessed with a 3-minute timed test with no more than 3 errors.  Basically, an EGUSD student who can type 22 WPM is meeting the graduation requirement. Note: It’s common for a CRES 2nd grader, enrolled in a typing program, to meet this standard. This video introduces proper finger placement and posture:
