6320: Students' Graduation

Graduation from our schools indicates that students have satisfactorily completed the prescribed courses of study in accordance with their respective abilities to achieve and that they have satisfactorily passed any district level assessments, and examinations or other requirements set by the faculty. In addition, students shall have maintained a satisfactory record of citizenship during the students’ progression through the instructional program of the schools. 

The faculty will establish detailed requirements to agree with the school goals as adopted by the Board. It is expected that, insofar as possible, the faculty will apply measures of achievement to provide evidence that each student has progressed far enough toward school goals to warrant the student’s graduation according to the terms of this Policy. 

The principal of each school will arrange each spring for appropriate awards and recognition programs. Formal graduation exercises will be held for high school students meeting district requirements and will be coordinated between the high school administrators and the Superintendent. 

In accordance with the requirements of state law, a student who receives special education services under the 

Special Education Act and does not qualify for graduation may receive a certificate of attendance.
