Any senior who earns an F in the first and/or second semester in any subject must be corrected through credit recovery. A student’s diploma will not be issued until all such credit is made up. Students losing credit due to excessive absences (more than 5 absences per class) must also make up credit before receiving a diploma. In addition, any student who has three (3) or more “F” grades on his/her transcript that have not been made up will not be allowed to walk in the Commencement Exercises. He/she will receive a diploma only when the “F” grades are made up. Community Service is a graduation requirement. Any senior who has not completed the Community Service component prior to graduation will not be allowed to walk in the graduation ceremony. Please read page 58 (1201) of the 2019-2020 Parent-Student Handbook regarding graduation requirements.
