Tips for Senior Parents
Is your “senior” on track to graduate?
To ensure your senior student is on track to earn their high school diploma in June, you may view your child’s current graduation status via the Parent Portal by selecting “Graduation Status” under the “Grades” tab.
The Graduation Status is comprised of five columns. The first and second columns list the subject requirements and maximum number of credits needed per subject to earn a diploma. The third column, “Credit’s completed,” lists the credits your child completed by the end of their junior year. The fourth column lists the credits that your child is currently enrolled in and needs to complete for the fall 2014 semester, and the fifth column represents the credits that will need to be completed during your child’s final semester, spring 2015.
By the end the fall semester of senior year, seniors should have completed 195 credits to be considered “on track” to earn a diploma at the end of the spring semester. Students who have fewer than 195 credits are considered “at-risk.” Students “at-risk” of earning their diploma will most likely be enrolled in one or more of the following: 6 or 7 classes, the Academic Intervention class or the CUSD Online Credit Recovery Program.
Please note that the Graduation Status reflects graduation requirements only, not college admissions requirements. To ensure that your child is meeting college admission requirements please refer to the “Grades” tab and select “College Entrance Requirements.”
Please be advised that your child must pass all required courses indicated in the fourth and fifth columns under “Graduation Status” in order to earn their diploma and participate in the commencement ceremony on June 19, 2015. We encourage you and your child to monitor grades via School Loop to ensure success. If you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s graduation status or college admissions status, please contact your Academic Advisor.
