In order to graduate from Jordan-Elbridge Central School District, a student must successfully complete the requirements set forth in Part 100 of the Commissioner’s Regulations. The Jordan-Elbridge Board of Education reserves the right to establish requirements for graduation which exceed the minimum standards as defined by the New York State Regents.
A student shall be eligible for early graduation in fewer than eight semesters upon completion of all requirements for graduation, excluding physical education, as mandated by Commissioner's Regulations. A student shall not be required to continue enrollment for the sole purpose of completing physical education requirements. The District, upon request from the student's parent/guardian, may choose to grant the student a high school diploma prior to his/her completion of the eighth semester.
