Graduation Pathway   See Graduation Pathway options listed below under “Additional State Graduation Requirements”


* Subject area requirements may be satisfied through district approved equivalency courses. An approved equivalency course may satisfy two (2) graduation requirements - one (1) in the curriculum area in which the course is offered and one (1) in the curriculum area in which the course appears on the district approved equivalency list.

** The High School and Beyond Plan is a state graduation requirement that begins in middle school. Students will work with their counselor and other staff to create their own individual plan. Students meet this requirement by completing assigned grade level lessons and tasks using the Naviance Career and College Planning system. Students may earn .125 high school elective credits for each year they complete all required grade level Naviance
lessons and tasks. Grade level tasks must be completed during the grade level year they are assigned in order to obtain credit.

Graduates

To be eligible to graduate, students must meet both Washington State and Edmonds School District graduation requirements. To find out if your child is on track to earn a diploma, your best resource is to contact your child’s school counselor.
