Career-Related Learning Standards

     
Extended Application




1 1 credit Algebra I and 2 credits above Algebra I level. Applied and integrated courses aligned to standards can meet credit requirements.
2 Scientific inquiry (2 credits with lab experiences). Lab experiences can take place outside of the school in field-based experiences. Applied and integrated courses aligned to standards can meet credit requirements.
3 This requirement is higher than the state's standard for the class of 2010 and 2011 — Oregon requires a minimum of 1 credit, but 2 credits of second language, arts, career and technical education are required to graduate from a 4J high school. 
4 The state is expected to phase in additional Essential Skills requirements after 2013–14.



Important Note: Students are accountable for the graduation requirements that apply to their class as an entering 9th-grader regardless of whether the student graduates early or takes more than four years to graduate.

Other Diploma Options: Some students will be eligible for other diplomas or completion certificate options; eligibility criteria are set by state law. Students who are eligible, and their parents, will be informed by school staff as part of the student’s individual planning process. Requirements for credit, career-related learning experiences and essential skills may vary for these other diploma options. If you have questions about the modified or extended diploma, please see Other Diploma Options or contact your high school’s counseling office.
