JR. High Completion Requirements

 

 

Challis Jr. High Completion Requirements

The Idaho State Department of Education (SDE) and the Idaho State Board of Education (SBOE) created a Middle Level Credit System in May 2007 with the purpose of improving rigor, relevance and relationships in the middle grades; identifying pockets of success throughout Idaho to develop best practices for all middle schools; and ensuring every Idaho student is prepared to be successful in high school and beyond.

The Middle School Credit System has focused on five key areas: Student accountability, middle level curriculum, academic intervention, leadership among staff at the middle level and transitions between the middle and the high school grades.

Jr. High Students don’t accrue credits in order to go into high school but to make it simpler to understand these requirements are based in credits much like high school graduation requirements.
