Earning Graduation Credits from Private or Online High School Programs
Students are strongly encouraged to complete their high school coursework at Casa Grande High School as the educational quality and rigor of private programs can vary from institution to institution. If a student chooses to enroll in a private, non-public online school, the student/parent/guardian is responsible for paying for all tuition and fees.
Only coursework from regionally accredited schools will be accepted for credit toward Petaluma City Schools High School Graduation requirements.
It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the coursework meets the specific requirements for the subject area in the Petaluma City Schools High School Graduation Requirements. Students should seek advice and discuss options with their School Counselor prior to enrolling in an online course. If students choose not to meet with a counselor prior to enrolling in a private/non-public/online high school program, they run the risk of selecting a course or program that is not certified to meet graduation, college entrance, or NCAA requirements.
The final grade from a private or online program must be submitted to the Registrar no later than two weeks prior to the last day of school. The final grade should be submitted on a formal document on institution letterhead or from the institution’s online student portal. It is the responsibility of the student to finish the course, take the exam, and receive the final grade by the two-week deadline.
Casa Grande High School Faculty and Staff do not proctor tests/final exams for private, non-public, or online high school programs. It is the responsibility of the student to make the final exam proctor arrangements.
