The High School Diploma and Alternative Awards: OAR 581-22-316. Standards Guidelines.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
Revisions in standards for Oregon's public elementary and secondary schools have led to changes in state requirements governing high school graduation requirements. This manual suggests guidelines for school districts to follow in granting diplomas or alternative awards. It discusses the meaning of a diploma under Oregon law, school districts' options on graduation requirements, suggested alternative degrees for students meeting some but not all diploma requirements, and special considerations for handicapped students. Included are sample school board policies and procedures for early and delayed graduation, as well as sample forms for diplomas and alternative awards. An appendix gives the full text of the new state regulation on graduation requirements. (RW)
