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.
