GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

High School graduation requires a certain amount of growth in academic, social, and physical and occupational skills generally thought to be useful in adult life. Since each student enters the  high school experience with a unique set of needs and abilities, it can be expected that the experience provided and the amount of growth observed will vary widely among students. Although there are many differences among students, and graduation from high school will not represent exactly the same for every student, the Kelso School District does possess the responsibility to assure some degree of consistency among its secondary schools with respect to the education represented by a school diploma. This responsibility leads the Board of Education to hereby establish requirements for high school graduation. These requirements shall be consistent with the provisions in Chapter 180-51 WAC.

*Please contact your students counselor with questions regrading these Graduation Requirements

The Counseling Department collaborates with staff, families, and community resources in order to provide academic, social/emotional and career based services for ALL students. Through individual, group and school wide services, counselors advocate and support students’ high school success, future planning and social/emotional learning.
