Home-Based Instruction

Important Consideration for High School Aged Students

The District does not accept home-based instruction for credit toward high school graduation from a District school. Home-based coursework that is not completed at an approved public or private school is not eligible to be added to the High School Transcript, does not change high school graduation requirements, and may not be used toward satisfaction of those requirements. A student’s expected year of graduation, or base grad year, is set upon entry into the ninth grade and advances one grade level per year whether or not the student subsequently receives home-based instruction.
