Important Note: Students are accountable for the graduation requirements that apply to their class as an entering 9th-grader regardless of whether the student graduates early or takes more than four years to graduate.

Other Diploma Options: Some students will be eligible for other diplomas or completion certificate options; eligibility criteria are set by state law. Students who are eligible, and their parents, will be informed by school staff as part of the student’s individual planning process. Requirements for credit, career-related learning experiences and essential skills may vary for these other diploma options. If you have questions about the modified or extended diploma, please see Other Diploma Options or contact your high school’s counseling office.
