HS Promotion Guidelines & Graduation Requirements:

Grade level promotion in high school is determined by the acquisition of credits. Students are scheduled into appropriate sequential courses based on their grade level, their major, acquired credits from the previous year(s), and the successful completion of certain classes.  It is the responsibility of students to attempt to pass every class, as making up credits throughout the school year puts additional constraints on the successful completion of a degree program. The failure to pass required courses and the attainment of required credits by the end of a students’ senior year will result in the student not graduating on time and not being able to participate in the graduation ceremony.
