Early Graduation

The Elkhorn Area High School provides a comprehensive program of learning activities and experiences for the students during their years in school.

 A student may graduate upon completion of graduation requirements, in accordance with established procedures and with the approval of the Early Graduation Committee.

 An exception may be made to the policy or procedures at the discretion of the Board of Education Policy Committee.

                             EARLY GRADUATION PROCEDURES
 1. Upon written parental request (see application under “Forms”), a student 
     may graduate upon completion of graduation requirements.
 2. The decision for approval or denial of an early graduation request will be
     made by the Board of Education Policy Committee.
 3. Students applying for early graduation will be permitted to take classes
     necessary to complete graduation requirements. It is understood that any
     approval of an early graduation is contingent upon the student satisfying all
     credit requirements.

     a. Students graduating early will be required to take final exams, or their
     equivalent, prior to their last school day.
     b. Prior to graduation, final class rank in the present graduating class will be
     based on the last grading period of the final term while the student is
     enrolled with the Elkhorn Area School District. Early graduates will be eligible
     for any scholarships awarded by the Elkhorn Area High School Scholarship
     Foundation and/or Committee. Early graduates will also be eligible for a
     Wisconsin Academic Excellence Scholarship.
     c. No formal diploma will be issued or commencement exercises held for 
     early graduates. Those early graduates will be permitted to return for 
     regular commencement activities if they so desire. Their school records will
     indicate completion of all graduation requirements for the purpose of 
     employment or post-high school training. If the student chooses not to
     participate, the diploma will be issued following the commencement
     d. Those individuals who graduate early will not be permitted to take part in
     any organized school activity (such as athletics, clubs, school dances, field 
     trips, etc.), with the exception of Senior Honor’s Night and commencement
     activities. They will, however, be permitted to attend school functions open
     to the public like any other member of the adult community.
5. An exception may be made to the policy or procedures at the discretion of
    the School Board and/or Early Graduation Committee.
