The Board of Education believes that the completion of an organized and sequential course of study is the foundation that prepares students for post-secondary education, careers, and/or employment. Students who successfully complete a year-long course will receive 10 credits (5 credits for each semester) provided attendance requirements are met.

If a student does not meet ALL of the graduation requirements, the student will not receive a diploma and will not be able to participate in the graduation ceremony.  Each student must earn a total of 220 credits to meet graduation requirements.
