1 AWARDING OF DIPLOMAS Students must be enrolled in a SISD high school at the end of the year in order to receive a diploma from the SISD. Students completing graduation course requirements in another district will not be allowed to receive a diploma from a SISD high school. The only exception may be when a course needed for graduation is not available in the SISD. In this case, prior written permission must be received from the campus principal. There will be a two credit limit under this condition. Students who do not meet graduation requirements by the end of the school year and who subsequently enroll in and complete coursework during the following summer prior to the summer graduation ceremony will be granted a diploma reflecting the preceding May s graduation date. Students who enroll in and complete coursework during the following school year after the summer graduation ceremony will be granted a diploma reflecting that year s graduation date.
