All students have to meet certain criteria in order to graduate from Ten Sleep High School. Due to new state rules and regulations, these criteria have now been modified to some extent.
As has been the case for some time now, students need to earn twenty-six (26) credits in order to graduate from our high school. While earning those credits, students must meet specific course requirements. These course requirements are listed below:
4 Credits - English
3 Credits - Math
3 Credits - Science
3 Credits - Social Studies
1 Credit - PE/Health
12 Credits - Electives
In addition to the above requirements, students must now show proficiency on the state standards in various content areas. Students must show proficiency in at least five of these nine areas: math, language arts (English), science, social studies, foreign language, physical education, fine and performing arts, health, and career/vocational.
The level of proficiency that each student achieves in the nine content areas will now be recorded on his/her high school transcript. Students can achieve one of three levels of proficiency: General, Comprehensive, or Advanced. To achieve a General Endorsement, a student will need to score in the proficient range on the standards in 5 of the 9 content areas. To achieve a Comprehensive Endorsement, a student will need to score in the proficient range on the standards in all 9 of the content areas. To achieve an Advanced Endorsement, a student will need to score in the advanced level in 5 content areas and proficient in 4 others. I have enclosed material for you that further explains the new graduation requirements and these levels of proficiency.
Any student who does not master the state standards in at least five areas and does not meet credit and course requirements will not receive a diploma from Ten Sleep High School. Remember, this is required by state regulation.
Ten Sleep Schools has classes in place so that students can demonstrate mastery of the standards, and meet the course and credit requirements.
