High school Requirements

Below are the graduation requirements for students in grades 9 – 11 during the 2011-2012 school year and all students thereafter.  For senior requirements, please contact me.  (From Daniel 1) Please Note:  These are in some ways specific to Daniel 1 and each parent needs to check with their umbrella program.  This is meant to give you a general idea of what is required in high school.  Always be sure you have your umberella program’s permission for each credit at the beginning of your school year.  Without prior approval, credits may be denied, leaving your student’s hard work a waste of time, in regards to credits earned.  Always check with your umbrella program (or superintendent) first, before making a high school plan for your student.
