Senior in Good Standing

In order to participate in our graduation ceremony, seniors must be in Good Standing.  The Senior in Good Standing Policy holds seniors district-wide to continued academic and behavioral expectations commensurate with our school’s high standards.  Participation in the graduation ceremony is voluntary and considered a privilege.  Seniors in Good Standing must:

Meet TUHSD graduation requirements.

Pass ALL classes.  Grades of F or incomplete in any class will prevent students from participating in the ceremony.

Attend classes.  Students who have excessive (five or more) unexcused absences in any class may be restricted from the ceremony. 

Behave appropriately.  Suspensions as a result of serious offenses, such as vandalism, fighting, or being under the influence of a controlled substances or alcohol are examples of incidents that will prevent one’s ability to participate in the ceremony and senior week activities.

Pay all outstanding bills.  Seniors must clear all fees in order to purchase tickets for Senior Prom.  Return all textbooks, library books, athletic equipment and clear all fees prior to Senior Check-Out in order to participate in senior activities and the graduation ceremony.


If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Admin Office.  Thank you!
