5464 - EARLY GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

Generally the administration discourages early graduation. However, if a student believes that s/he has a justifiable reason for early graduation, the student must first discuss his/her particular situation with a counselor. After counseling, if the student still desires early graduation, s/he must submit an application for early graduation to the principal. The administration will then review the case and make a decision as to whether the request is granted.

In all cases of early graduation, the following regulations will apply:

 A.A student who desires early graduation must make application by September 30th of the student's third year. If the application is approved, the student will be scheduled as a member of the senior class; however, the student will not be granted consideration for the position of valedictorian or salutatorian.

 B.In order to apply for early graduation, a student should have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.00 for the ninth and tenth grades.

 C.A student will not be permitted to enroll in two (2) English classes within the same semester for the purpose of early graduation unless the student has a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.00 in English at the completion of the tenth grade.
