- Approval by the superintendent of the waiver upon recommendation of the principal;
- Satisfactory completion of all state requirements for graduation at the high school or at the college/university or other institution approved by the board; and
- Satisfactory completion of sufficient college courses which may be substituted for required or elective courses for which high school credit shall be given in order to meet the high school graduation requirements.
The superintendent shall be responsible for developing procedures and criteria to implement this policy.
