Monitor Progress Towards High School Graduation
Students and families can monitor progress towards high school graduation requirements. There is a tab called “Graduation Requirements” on the left menu in Student and Family Access. After opening this menu you will see a list of the coursework requirements. We suggest first looking at four columns to help you interpret the information:
- Required: This is how many credits must be completed in a specific area.
- Complete: This is how many credits the student has completed and is on the transcript.
- In Progress: This is how many credits the student is enrolled in during the current year.
- Remaining: This is how many credits the student needs to take in future semesters to meet the requirements of that area.
Here is a more detailed view of the information in the Graduation Requirements tab:
There are additional columns in the view. These include:
- Number of credits scheduled for a future term.
- CTE Equivalency – Certain courses qualify for Career and Technical Education (CTE) Equivalency (also known as 2-for-1 or 2 graduation requirement credits fulfilled with 1 course credit earned.) The extra credit fulfilling the graduation requirement but not counted as earned credit is added to the General Electives graduation requirement credit total. This means that the student may take an extra elective since the core grad requirement was met through the equivalency process.
- Graduation Requirement Status is "Completed" when the number of credits “Required” equals the number of credits “Completed” plus the number of credits "In Progress." The system assumes the student will successfully pass the class. In the case where a student fails a class, the “Completed” status may change back to "In Progress" until the student successfully repeats the class or takes another class that fulfills the requirement.
- 1. Where can I find more information on graduation requirements?
- 2. If I have a question on my student’s graduation requirement courses or credits, who do I contact?
- 3. My student is in Running Start. Why are his/her classes not reflected as courses fulfilling the graduation requirements?
Running Start courses will be posted in graduation requirements when the school receives the grades from the college. Until then, you may see some graduation requirements with a status of “In Progress”. If your student is working towards a high school diploma from the Lake Washington School District, please confirm that the Running Start courses your student is taking are fulfilling the high school graduation requirements.
