Beginning in the winter the 8th grade year, each student will meet annually with guidance staff to start planning for, or review and revise, his or her high school schedule. While some areas of instruction are common to all students, many opportunities for electives, career-based instruction, College Credit Plus, and other unique learning paths exist. It is important that students look ahead at the multi-year picture when planning schedules to ensure the best opportunity to pursue their preferred learning path while meeting high school graduation requirements.
The annual Program of Studies explains graduation requirements, course offerings, and an includes a detailed explanation of the high school curriculum. The student has the responsibility to see that requirements for graduation are met. High school personnel make every effort to keep current records and to keep students and parents informed about the student’s progress toward completing the work necessary to meet these requirements. The student, however, must make sure that he or she is acquainted with the necessary requirements to meet this goal. This task is ultimately the student’s responsibility.
All graduation requirements must be completed prior to graduation. Please note that graduation requirements are minimum requirements. Most students will have earned more than the minimum credits by the end of their senior year. The information in this Program of Studies is subject to change due to outstanding legislation and changes to curriculum.
