- Directed study

SENIORS, and possibly Juniors, needing three or less courses must maintain the required on-campus enrollment of 180 minutes, which is three class periods. Even though a student may not need some of these credits, the student is required to attend the minimum of three class periods. Please note: It is acceptable and routine, for students to graduate with more than the required 230 credits.
Seniors who have completed all courses offered on campus, yet have not completed all requirements, may be considered for approval of a directed study contract to finish coursework at home. Seniors must enroll in a course on campus, if it is offered on campus.
A maximum of 10 PE credits can be applied towards General Elective credit. (15 hours = one credit) PE hours are verified on the Class or Activity Verification sheet and must be supervised by an instructor, coach or parent.
A maximum of 40 credits of Work Experience can be applied toward Graduation Requirement (maximum of 10 credits of work experience per quarter) Students earn one credit of Work Experience for every 20 hours worked, as verified by pay stubs.
