    Graduation Requirements 


    Complete a High School and Beyond Plan

    To graduate from high school, all students must develop a High School and Beyond Plan on how they will meet the high school graduation requirements and what they will do following high school. A student’s plan, which starts in middle school and is revised as he/she moves forward, should include the classes need to prepare for a postsecondary pathway, such as a two-year or four-year college, technical college, apprenticeship program, certificate program, the workforce or military training. (ESHB 2224)

    Required elements of the High School and Beyond Plan, at a minimum, are:


    • Begins in 7th or 8th grade,

    • Identification of career goals based on a career interest and skills inventory or assessment,

    • Identification of educational goals,

    • A four-year course plan that fulfills graduation requirements and aligns with career and educational goals,

    • And a resume or activity log by the end of twelfth grade that provides a written compilation of student’s education, any work experience, and any community service and how the school district has recognized the community service pursuant to RCW 28A.320.193.


    The High School & Beyond Plan must be updated to reflect high school assessment results in RCW 28A.655.070(3)(b) and to review transcripts, assess progress toward identified goals, and revised as necessary for changing interests, goals and needs. The plan must identify available interventions and academic support, courses, or both, that are designed for students who have not met the high school graduation standard, to enable them to meet the standard.

    A school district must update the High School and Beyond Plan for each student who has not earned a score of level 3 on the middle school mathematics assessment identified in RCW 28A.655.070 by ninth grade, to ensure that the student takes a mathematics course in both ninth and tenth grades. This course may include career and technical equivalencies in mathematics adapted pursuant to RCW 28A.230.097.

    A student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) or 8th graders who need to complete a Student Learning Plan before high school, may use these plans to support but not replace their High School and Beyond Plan.

    School districts are encouraged to involve parents and guardians in the process of developing and updating the High School and Beyond Plan. (ESHB 2224[2017] and E2SSB 6552[2014])

    Questions about guidelines should be directed to the high school or school district office.



    Each school district determines the guidelines to meet requirements for the High School and Beyond Plan.
