Generally, students will be required to complete the necessary course work and graduate from high school at the end of the twelfth grade. Students may graduate prior to this time if they meet the minimum graduation requirements stated in Board policy and the student has the approval of the board and a recommendation by the superintendent and building principal.
A student who graduates early will no longer be considered a student and will become an alumnus of the district. Students are required to give notice of their intent to graduate early at spring registration. Application forms are available in the counselors’ offices and must be completed by December 1 for mid-term graduation and by April 1 for graduation at the end of the junior year.
Students who graduate early may attend the next graduation ceremony (e.g., if they graduate at the end of their junior year, they may attend that spring’s ceremony or if they graduate at the end of the first semester of their senior year, they may attend the following spring’s ceremony). It will be the responsibility of the early graduates to check with the school, in advance of graduation, regarding:
1. Picking up announcement package;
2. Distribution of cap and gown;
3. Graduation practice.
