|Planning and Counseling Requirement|
|State requires student to adopt learning plan (not including career pathway requirements)||Yes. "Students will maintain a parent-approved student learning plan for their high school and post-high school options. The learning plan will be developed by students and parents or
guardians with advice and recommendation from school personnel. It will be reviewed annually and may be revised at any time. The purpose of a parent-approved student learning plan is to outline a course of study and learning activities for students to become contributing members of society. A student learning plan describes, at a minimum, the list of courses and learning activities in which the student will engage while working toward meeting the district’s graduation standards. The school district will have met its obligation for parental involvement if it makes a good faith effort to notify the parent or guardian of the responsibility for the development and approval of the learning plan. A learning plan will not be required if the parent or guardian requests, in writing, that no learning plan be developed."|
|Additional Coursework Options and Requirements|
|State has policy on early graduation||Yes. "Any high school student who completes the number of credits and exiting standards required by both the state and the school district prior to completing 8 semesters of high school work may petition the local superintendent and board of trustees to graduate early."|
