All public high school students are required to meet statewide graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma. The goal is that more students will be better prepared to meet 21st-century demands in their working and personal lives.
To earn a high school diploma, a student must:
- Earn high school credit
- Pass state tests or approved alternatives to those tests
- Complete a High School and Beyond Plan
The Washington State Board of Education establishes minimum credit requirements, state tests, and the High School and Beyond Plan.
