GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

Students meet requirements in order to graduate from MITCS. All credit and course requirements must be fulfilled and proficiency on exams and assessments, as mandated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), must be attained. Examples include Keystone Exam scores, local grade requirements, alternative assessments, completion of certain courses/programs, college acceptance, and career readiness evidence. 

 

MITCS encourages parents to monitor their student’s progress toward meeting graduation requirements. Parents play a vital role in ensuring that their student has earned the required number of credits by their senior year. Typically, a student begins to accumulate credits as a freshman. MITCS will make every effort to notify parents/guardians when students are deficient. However, the ultimate responsibility for meeting all graduation requirements rests with the student. Any student who does not meet the requirements for graduation will not be permitted to participate in graduation activities, including commencement, and will not be awarded a diploma from MITCS until such time as all criteria are met to MITCS’s satisfaction. 

MITCS requires all students to complete Homebase in order to be eligible for graduation. Beginning with the graduating class of 2023, statewide graduation requirements provide pathways for high school students to demonstrate readiness for postsecondary success as outlined in Act 6 and Act 158.

Personal Learning Time is scheduled into the school day for all students for the opportunity to take additional online course offerings that will enhance their knowledge in their chosen Pathway, but will also be utilized to assist those students who are struggling and are in need of additional support in their core classes so they are successful throughout their high school career.
