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.|
