8. RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT FOR ACTION
8.A. Policies First Reading
Discussion:  Dr. Ginger Woods discussed the board policy 4.605, Graduation Requirements. Students have different options for diplomas. 
  • A special education diploma shall be awarded to students that have not met the requirements for a regular high school diploma, but completed four years of high school and successfully completed their IEP. (The special education diploma does count against the graduation rate.)
  • The alternate academic diploma shall be awarded if the student has successfully completed twenty-two credit hours.
  • The occupational diploma is another option for students who do not meet the requirements for a regular high school diploma but have successfully mastered the SKEMA assessment.  Furthermore, the occupational diploma may be a possibility for students that have a learning disability, but not for students that have severe cognitive disabilities.
