Promotion & Graduation Requirements

There are 3 requirements students must meet to be promoted to the next grade level or to graduate: academics, fitness, and discipline.

Academics: Students have three academic requirements to be promoted to the next grade level or to graduate.

  1. Students must earn the credits from every class in which they are enrolled during the regular school year.
  2. Students must earn a specified number of enrichment credits taken outside the regular school day.
  3. Students must pass the community service requirement as outlined in the community service syllabus. The requirement is to complete 20 hours per year. 80 hours total to graduate.

**Course Failures: Any student lacking credits at the end of the semester in any area will be expected to enroll in make-up classes in order to make the credits up and stay on track for promotion. Any student failing classes at the end of semester one will be expected to take them in night school during semester two. If they fail classes during the second semester, they will be expected to make the class(s) up in a summer school program approved by the Administration. **

Physical Fitness: Students must pass the physical fitness test and health test to be promoted to the next grade level and to graduate.

Discipline: Any student who accumulates more than the maximum allowable number of detentions, or more than 20 days of suspension in any one year will not be promoted to the next grade or graduate. If a student exceeds the maximum number of allowable detentions for a year, that student will be required to take summer behavior class in order to be promoted/graduate. The maximum number of allowable detentions before needing a behavior class in a school year for all grades is 12. 

Community Service:  Students must meet the required number of community service in order to promote to the next grade.  See community service syllabus for requirements.
