No commencement, graduation, or other formal articulation exercises shall be held except those for students who have completed senior high school requirements.

However, students who are short one class on graduation day may be permitted to participate in commencement exercises with their classmates and receive their diplomas after the one deficient class is satisfactorily completed.

Students receiving special education services may participate in the graduation ceremony with their age-appropriate peers, receive a certificate of attendance, and continue to receive special education services up to age twenty-one. Once these students have completed their individual graduation plan that is based on their IEP, they will receive a high school diploma and Certificate of Individual Achievement.

Students receiving English Language Learning services who have completed all high school graduation requirements but have not yet passed one of the state testing graduation requirements and have submitted a Collection of Evidence to OSPI and are awaiting results, may participate in the graduation ceremony with their peers and receive a certificate of attendance. Once the district has confirmation that all state graduation requirements have been met, they will receive a high school diploma and Certificate of Academic Achievement.

A student's official transcript shall list all courses taken while in high school.

The superintendent shall develop procedures to conduct the ceremony.
