Students also must demonstrate their mastery of the Essential Skills. Currently, three of the Essential Skills are graduation requirements:
- Read and comprehend a variety of text
- Write clearly and accurately
- Apply mathematics in a variety of settings
How Can Students Meet This Requirement?
Students are tested primarily by using the SBAC test. In the spring of a student's 11th grade year, they will complete work samples in core classes. If the student meets the standard in their work sample, it can be used as alternative to meet the Essential Skills requirement. For more information on ways students can meet this requirement, visit: http://www.ode.state.or.us/wma/teachlearn/testing/resources/es_assessment-options_all.pdf
In addition to the standard diploma, students can work towards a Chancellor's Diploma or Honors Graduate status. Click here to see the GHS student worksheet for tracking Chancellor's Diploma and Honors Graduate requirements.
