Section 3 Graduation Requirements Policy 6005-6008

Students at Weeping Water School are enrolled under the assumption that they plan to receive a diploma. The requirements for graduation are established to meet the needs of the average student and are based upon both State requirements and local criteria. (5 credit hours per class). Senior students who do not meet graduation requirements will not participate in the Commencement exercises. They will not receive their diploma or certificate until they have met all graduation requirements as set forth by the Board of Education. To be a full-time student they must be in school for 6 of 8 periods. For a part-time student they must be in school for 4 of 8 periods. Final decisions to be a full-time/part-time student will be made by the administration.

In order to qualify for graduation, a student must successfully complete eight semesters and for each graduating class required credits are as follows: 2017 class=240 credits, 2018=250, 2019=255 credits, 2020=260 credits at Weeping High School and/or another accredited high school.  A student will not receive a diploma or certificate until all graduation requirements set forth by the Board of Education have been met. 

NOTE: In the area of math, students will be placed in course by grade earned in class prior and by teacher recommendation. Parents have the right to disagree with the school’s recommendation in writing to allow students to take another option for math.
