Graduation Requirements

 

Students who graduate in the class of 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 have the opportunity to graduate under three different plans: the Regular Program, the State Board of Education Recommended High School Program, and the Distinguished Achievement Program. Each of these programs requires 24 units of credit for graduation with specific courses or measures listed for each plan. Beginning with the class of 2007 any thereafter, students will graduate under the Recommended High School Program and/or the Distinguished High School Program. An ARD or ADA committee may provide exceptions to graduation plans.

Under the regular program, freshman students graduating in 2001 and thereafter are required to have 24 credits as follows to graduate:
English (4)
Mathematics (3)
Science (3)
Social Studies (3)
Fine Arts (1)
Speech (1/2)
Computer Technology Applications (1)
Physical Education (1 1/2)
Health (1/2)
Languages other than English (2)
Electives (4 1/2)

The recommended and distinguished achievement programs require additional, higher level course credits. This information is found in the Academic Planning Guide.

For all students, the graduation requirements are determined by the year the student entered the ninth grade. This applies to transfer students as well as regularly enrolled students.
