Graduation Requirements

The mission of Jeffco Public Schools is to provide a quality education that prepares all children for a successful future. Graduation requirements, adopted by the Jefferson County Board of Education, call for each student to have a six year Graduation Plan beginning in seventh grade.

The plan will be the student's roadmap toward completing high school successfully and making good career decisions. Creating this plan will be a partnership between the student, parents and school staff.

The district requires the following high school credits to receive a diploma:

Credits
English Language Arts

In grades 9 - 12, students shall take at least four classes in core contents or three Advanced Placement courses or International Baccalaureate courses every semester.
