Information & Resources For Students

Graduation & Promotion Requirements

The Promotion and Graduation Policy (pdf) provides information on the requirements that must be met by students to be promoted and grade 12 students to graduate. These requirements include passing major subjects and completion of a project.

Supports for students, including an extended day program, will be in place to help students meet the requirements. The TerraNova and End of Grade (EOG) tests will no longer be administered as system-wide assessments. Other assessments are being administered as needed. This policy will remain in effect until a new policy is issued.

Upperclassmen are encouraged to seek out internship opportunities with local organizations and businesses in areas that they are interested in. Internships are excellent ideas for students to identify career paths for which they may be interested.
