Graduation Requirements

Beginning with the Class of 2019, the total number of credits required for high school graduation has been reduced from 240 to 220 by reducing the elective requirement by 20 credits.  See graduation requirements below.  Students still have the option to take 240 credits through SRVUSD.  The 220 credit is the minimum number a student must take in order to graduate.

Change in the Minimum Six-Period Day Requirement for High School Students

Starting in the 2018-19 school year, the minimum six-period day requirement will be reduced to a minimum five-period period day to allow students more flexibility in their schedules and to align with the reduction in the number of credits required for graduation. As a result, students will be able to take 5, 6 or 7 on-campus courses in high school. Note: Students participating in Independent Study PE, iQuest, Internships, or Work Experience must be enrolled in at least five classes at their school, with Independent Study PE, iQuest, Internship or Work Experience as their sixth class.
