Alternative Graduation Options
For some students, the traditional pathway to graduation is not the best solution. This can be due to a number of different factors. If you feel like an alternative option may be best for you, please make an appointment to see your counselor. He or she is knowledgeable on the various options and can guide you to the best choice for you. Below are some links to some of the options available to you.
Option 1 Pathway
Option Pathway is designed for students who have failed major core courses and are in the ninth, tenth, eleventh or twelfth grade. A second-semester junior or a senior must already be enrolled in and passing a CTE pathway unless the school has a CTE pathway that requires only one year to complete.
