LOCAL REQUIREMENTS

Although the state requires a designated number of courses and credits for students to graduate, local school districts may require additional courses and credits. On top of the extra course and credit requirements, some districts and schools may require students to successfully complete a graduation project or other assignment to earn a high school diploma. Parents and students are strongly encouraged to check with their high school counselors to determine if their district and/or school have additional requirements for students to meet to receive a high school diploma.
