SRCS Graduation Requirements

The Board of Education believes that the completion of an organized and sequential course of study is the foundation that prepares students for post-secondary education and/or employment. In grades 9 - 12, 220 credits are required for graduation.  Students who successfully complete a year-long course will receive 10 credits (5 credits for each semester) provided attendance requirements are met.

Details of the district’s graduation requirements are found in Board Policy 6146.1 or information may be obtained on the district website.

If a student does not meet ALL of the requirements, the student will not receive a diploma, nor attend the graduation ceremony.  Each student must earn a total of 220 credits to meet graduation requirements.
