1 High School Graduation Requirements Procedure No. 2410A A student graduating from a Longview high school shall receive a diploma indicating essential skills competency and exit outcomes proficiency. In addition, students will complete a minimum of 22 credits in grades 9 12 in specified areas and electives. All entering ninth grade students enrolled in the Longview high schools shall prepare and annually update an individual high school and beyond (4+ Plan) which addresses strategies for successfully meeting the following three requirements. I. Essential Skills A. Beginning with the class of 2008, students must earn a Longview School District diploma or the certificate of individual achievement, or have met Washington state standards as designated per cohort years to be eligible to receive a diploma. All students not demonstrating success on any state-required standard measured by state approved assessments will have a student learning plan in place describing what academic steps the student must take to graduate on time. The district will meet with parents at least annually to inform them of the student learning plan, actions the school plans to take, and the student s progress. II. Exit Outcome Proficiency A. Students will demonstrate proficiency in each of the district s exit outcomes 1. Responsible Citizens 4. Effective Communicators 2. Quality Producers 5. Self-directed Learners 3. Resourceful Thinkers 6. Knowledgeable Persons B. Proficiency of exit outcomes one through five shall be demonstrated through a culminating project, part of which shall include an oral presentation component. C. Proficiency in exit outcome number six shall be determined through the Washington Comprehensive Assessment Program and classroom assessments. III. General Education Achievement - 22 credits required A. High School credit shall mean: One credit represents a passing grade in a one-period class that is scheduled to meet daily throughout the school year for planned in-school instruction. Classes meeting differently will grant proportional credits. With this formula, a student earns one credit for a yearlong course and.5 credits for a semester class. Credits are earned in grades 9-12 or the equivalent of a 4-year high school program or as otherwise provided in RCW 28A A and B. 1) Successful completion, as defined by written district policy, of courses taught to the state s essential academic learning requirements (learning standards). If there are no state adopted learning standards for a subject, the school board or its designee shall determine learning standards for the successful completion of that subject, or Longview School District Page 1 of 12

2 2) Satisfactory demonstration by a student of proficiency/competency, as defined by written district policy of the state learning requirements (learning standards). B. Prerequisite Courses and Waivers - Any waiver of a required course will not constitute an equivalent credit within a curriculum area. When prior knowledge and skills are required for success in a specific course, prerequisite courses may be required. A waiver of prerequisite course requirement will be granted if the student demonstrates these skills and knowledge in an objective assessment used to determine placement. C. Required Courses Credits Needed 1. English 4 credits Reading, Writing, Oral Communication and Literature will be included in the four credits 2. Math (implementation effective with the Class of 2004) 2/3* credits One credit must include Algebra I or Integrated I and one credit of Geometry or Integrated II. * credits required for the Class of 2013 and beyond 3. Laboratory Science 2 credits a. Chemistry or equivalent.5 credits b. Physics or equivalent.5 credits c. Biology or equivalent 1.0 credit 4. Community Health & Safety.5 credit 5.

3 World Geography and Cultures d. Washington State History and Government** (0.5 credit) **Students must have a record of successful completion of one course in Pacific Northwest History and Government. This requirement may be satisfied through a class taken at middle school. Students entering school for the first time in this state as seniors are excused [required by WAC (2)]. Any student who has completed and passed at least a semester of state history in another state in grades seven through twelve is excused [WAC (2b)]. 9. Electives a. Career Pathways (implementation effective with the Class of 2004) 2 credits In addition to the required courses, at least two elective credits must be earned in the same individual high school and beyond plan. b. Unrestricted Electives Balance needed to earn minimum of 22 credits. IV. Rationale for Exceeding Minimum State Graduation Requirements Pursuant to WAC , the Board of Directors of the Longview School District hereby indicates its rationale for imposing graduation requirements in excess of the minimum in WAC and WAC A. English - Four credits in English exceeds the minimum standard by 1 credit. The Longview School District believes that oral and written communication is critical to successful participation in our society. The student who cannot competently read, or who cannot effectively express ideas orally or in writing, faces severe handicaps in a world where these skills are highly valued. B. Community Health & Safety - State minimum standards do not require health for graduation. The Longview School District believes that all students should be required to receive instruction in community health and safety in order to better prepare them to care for themselves and others. C. Social Studies - The Longview School District believes that in our global society students must have a thorough understanding of the underlying principles of social, religious, economic, and political systems, as well as diversity, interdependence, continuity, change, and citizenship in the United States of America. D. Career Pathways - The career pathways requirement is in addition to state requirements. The Longview School District believes that each student should explore a variety of career pathways and choose a pathway that prepares a student for entrance into advanced training in a four-year community or technical college, apprenticeship in specific occupational industry certifications, or entry level employment. Career pathways enable the student to better focus high school learning experiences in preparation for life after high school. Longview School District Page 3 of 12

4 V. Sequential Requirement for English, Mathematics, and Science English, mathematics, and science shall not be applied toward the state-mandated subject area requirements at a rate exceeding one credit per year, except under the following conditions: A. Students who transfer from outside the state of Washington who have already earned five or more credits, but who will not be able to make normal progress toward graduation with their class without an exception. B. Students who fail a course and jointly enroll in the failed course and another course in the same subject, if the student is not able to make normal progress toward graduation with his/her class without an exception. C. A student/parent request for individual consideration, such as a plan for acceleration or special interest in a subject matter, may be approved by the building principal. VI. Required Class Load Each student in the ninth thru twelfth grades will be enrolled in a minimum program of six daily class periods. Variations to the required class load for individual students may occur based upon specific student needs and appropriate educational planning. VII. Enrollment Period Students will normally be enrolled in grades 9-12 for the equivalent of eight semesters to be considered eligible for graduation. A student requesting special consideration (see paragraph X) must obtain approval on or before the completion of the junior year. VIII. Transfer Students A. From Other Accredited Schools - A full program of classes at other accredited secondary schools will be honored by the Longview School District as an equivalent of a full program of classes in this district when evaluating credits for graduation. B. From Home-Based Schools - Home-based students who wish to graduate from a Longview high school must meet the requirements of procedure C. All transfer students must demonstrate mastery of essential skills on a standardized assessment from the state that they transfer from or by successfully meeting standards of the Washington Comprehensive Assessment Program D. All transfer students are required to complete all or a portion of a culminating project. IX. Participation in Commencement Exercises Longview School District Page 4 of 12

5 In order to participate in Longview School District commencement exercises, students must have completed all graduation requirements. Non-immigrant foreign students are covered under policy and procedure X. Special Consideration A. Any request for exceptions to the graduation policy must be accompanied by a statement of cause and a plan for credit attainment. This plan must be presented to the building principal for approval in accordance with procedure 2410D. B. Students enrolled in the special education program shall be expected to meet as many of the graduation requirements as determined to be within their capacity. Graduation requirements for special education students may vary from the district and state general requirements according to the individual education program (IEP) as prescribed by the student s multi-disciplinary team and the IEP committee. Any student who is receiving special education or related services under an individual education program pursuant to state and federal law and will continue to receive such services between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one will have the right to participate in the graduation ceremony and activities after four years of high school attendance with his or her age-appropriate peers. XI. Grade Level Classification Prior to full implementation of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), No Child Left Behind (NCLB) required cohort data collection system for determination of ontime graduation for the class of 2008, high school students will be promoted to the next grade each year, regardless of credits earned, until the end of their junior year. Students will need a minimum of 16 credits to be eligible for senior status and will remain at the junior year until 16 credits are earned and students are on target with the culminating project.
