High School Graduation Requirements

Students must earn the appropriate number of units listed below to be considered on-track for graduation. Students will be asked to make up course work not passed by attending credit recovery programs or attending Summer Tutorial (fees may be required). Students will not repeat courses which they have passed.  Exceptions to this practice will be made only in extenuating circumstances. Exceptions are to be considered on an individual basis by the principal and are to be documented with details in the student’s academic folder with a statement signed by the principal. Juniors and seniors who are transferring to Bulloch County Schools and have met state graduation requirements may be exempt from additional local requirements.
