GRADUATION Requirements and Plan

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 2016,2017

High School Graduation Requirements (from BULLETIN 741) All Information herein from:
http://www.louisianaschools.net/lde/saa/1179.html



Louisiana State Law Act 1124 established that all students grade 8 through grade 12 must select and schedule classes around a chosen career path.   Career paths, separated into career clusters and areas of concentration in the cluster, are chosen by the student and parents. The student will then schedule courses from the cluster-concentration area in order to complete the career path by the end of his/her senior year.  However, the goal is for the student to complete a career cluster-concentration by the end of the senior year; if the student's career path is changed each year, he/she may not have taken enough primary courses to complete a career path by the senior year. 
 
Please review the chart below that lists Salmen High School's career clusters and areas of concentration (also called career paths or career offerings).  Below that chart you will find another chart that lists the career cluster-concentrations with the primary courses and any certifications offered with that career path.  These can be used to schedule the primary courses for your career path. 
 Students on the Basic Diploma must complete and Area of Concentration in order to earn his diploma.  The students must have 4 primary courses and 2 related courses.  Failure to complete an Area of Concentration will prevent a student from graduating for those who began high school in 2010-2011.  Please be sure to schelule classes within the courses listed below for completion.  Students graduating in 2016 and 2017 on the Basic diploma will be required to complete the Area of Concentration.  Students completing the coursework necessary to graduate under the LA Core 4 Graduation requirements automatically complete the Advanced Studies/LA Core 4 AOC.
