Early Graduation

The North Tama County Community School District maintains an officially adopted School Board policy  (Code #605.6) of Early Graduation.  Students may graduate prior to the completion of grade twelve IF the course requirements stated in the Graduation Requirements (listed in our student handbook) have been fulfilled.

Students wishing to graduate early must make application to the Principal at least one quarter before they will complete their graduation requirements.  Students will then be notified when they have completed their course work for Early Graduation.

Students who graduate early will NOT be eligible for extra-curricular activities after they complete their course work.  A student who graduates early will no longer be considered a student and will become an alumnus of the school district. However, the student who graduates early may participate in commencement exercises and prom. Participation in commencement shall be limited to receiving the diploma and accepting any awards that may be presented at graduation.
