Graduation Requirements

Florida Graduation Requirements may vary depending on the year the student entered High School. It is always a good idea to check with your Homeroom Teacher or Ms. Cadet to be sure you are on track for Graduation.

FLORIDA VIRTUAL SCHOOL
If you plan to start a Florida Virtual course, you must first create an account at FLVS.net and select your desired course(s). FLVS courses may be used to accelerate or to “forgive” grades of “D” or “F” to improve the GPA. Only middle school students may retake a course with a “C” and only if that course was taken in middle school as a high school course.

Please note:
For students who entered grade nine in the 2011-2012 school year, at least one course within the 24 credits required must be completed through online learning to meet the digital learning graduation requirement. An online course taken during grades 6 through 8 fulfills this requirement. This requirement may be met through an online course offered by the Florida Virtual School, an online course offered by the high school, or an online dual enrollment course, offered pursuant to a district inter-institutional articulation agreement. A student, who is enrolled in a full-time or part-time virtual instruction program, meets this requirement.

PROCESS: Create an account by visiting FLVS.net and click on LOGIN. Then click on NEW STUDENT and complete all the requested demographic information. Then you will be directed to select your courses. If you are taking both semesters of the course, request both Term 1 and Term 2. The last step allows you to verify your information and the title at the top is COURSE REQUEST FORM. If everything is correct and the course requests are listed, print this form.

This must be signed by a parent and returned to guidance so that the course may be opened. Florida Virtual will then notify your child when space in the course is available. This could vary from a few days to a few months, depending upon the popularity of the course. Core courses may be taken for honors or non-honors credit.

Your child is required to regularly participate in these courses on a daily basis. If he/she finds that FLVS is not the best way for him/her to learn, withdrawal must take place before 28 days have expired. Students have up to 18 weeks to complete a 1/2 credit and up to 36 weeks to complete a full credit. However, keep in mind that during the school year, he/she is also expected to achieve success in his/her on-campus courses. Final grades are issued by FLVS and sent directly to SACM for posting to your child’s record.
