Students who complete graduation requirements before the end of the 4th term of his/her senior year may apply to be released early from high school. The diploma, however, will not be awarded until graduation. A student who has planned carefully with his/her parents, advisor, and counselor may complete credits and be approved for graduation in 3 to 3.5 years and be eligible for an early completion scholarship. To graduate early, students must complete 28 credits in the required categories.
Students who follow their Student Educational/Occupational Plan and satisfy the high school graduation requirements early will receive a regular diploma and may participate in the Canyon View High School graduation ceremony if they so desire. Be sure to visit with your advisor and counselor about your plans to graduate early.
An average of 7.0 credits must be completed each year for a student to graduate in 4 years. If a student takes seminary or requests home release for 1 period, only 7.0 credits can be earned per year.
All students are required to be enrolled in 8 classes each year, one of which may be seminary or home release, unless other arrangements have been made through an administrative conference. All students are required to maintain a full schedule.
All students with disabilities are required to demonstrate mastery of the courses in the general core. In the event that a student’s disability precludes the successful demonstration of mastery, the IEP team, on a case-by-case basis, may exempt the student or modify the competency demonstration to accommodate the student’s disability.
Students are strongly encouraged to put in the necessary time and effort
to pass classes the first time. To make up credit, students may opt to
complete high school home study courses from an accredited institution
at his/her expense, contract with the classroom teacher for remediation,
complete courses on Electronic High School, or make-up courses through
the SEA after school or summer school remediation programs. All options
with the exception of Home Study and Electronic High School will cost
$40 per .25 credit hours. Remediation with teachers is the most desirable
way to receive credit because the “F” grade is replaced with
a higher letter grade. SEA make-up credit is recorded as a pass or fail
grade and the quarter grade are replaced with a NG.
If a student receives an “F” for a quarter grade in any class, the student must make arrangements to make up the F in order to receive credit. To remediate with a teacher, the work must be completed by the end of the quarter following the quarter the course was failed or one of the other option will have to be used. The cost for credit remediation with a teacher is $40.00 per .25 credit.
CVHS students are involved in the creation of their schedules and have many opportunities to adjust and finalize it prior to school ending each spring. Students are responsible for carefully planning a good schedule and sticking to it. If a change is determined necessary, the student must plan the change and get permission from counselors, parents, his/her SEOP advisor, and from each teacher involved. Without these permissions, the schedule will not be approved. In addition, a $15.00 fee must be paid to the business office before a change will be approved and made.
No classes will be changed after the first 10 days of any semester except in extenuating circumstances and with permission from the principal. Scheduling of appointments to meet with your counselor regarding class changes must be done before school, at lunch, or after school.
The Iron Country School District officially supports the high school graduation requirements enumerated in the Secondary Core Curriculum of the Utah State Board of Education. We anticipate that each student will work towards earning one of the following three diploma options described below.
Canyon View High School Diploma
The Canyon View High diploma requires twenty-eight (28) total units of credit. Only those students earning this diploma will be eligible to participate in the Canyon View High School graduation ceremony.
Canyon View Diploma of Merit
The Merit Diploma exceeds requirements set by the Utah State Board of Education and those for the CVHS General Diploma and Iron County School District diploma. Any student desiring a Merit Diploma must make application in the counseling office by the end of 2nd 1/quarter of his/her senior year. Applications for individual department certifications are due by the end of the third quarter to the department head. Applications submitted after this date will not be considered. The Merit Diploma requires a student to: 1) accumulate twenty-eight credits as outlined for the General Diploma; 2) earn a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average; 3) 40 hours of documented service; and 4) meet the additional requirements outlined below:
The student must complete the requirements for at least one area of competency. Students who demonstrate high achievement and competency in a specific content area may apply for a seal to be placed on their diploma stating the area in which they have met the Merit Diploma requirements. The criteria met for each Area of Competency will be placed on the back of the Competency Certificate.
The following content areas offer Merit Diploma seals of achievement:
Basic Iron County Diploma
This diploma is available for students who have met the state minimum
requirements for a basic high school diploma but do not qualify and meet
the requirements for any of the other diplomas. While students may earn
this diploma at Canyon View High School, THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE
IN THE CVHS GRADUATION CEREMONIES. There will be an alternate ceremony
run by the district for these graduates. Only those students earning 28
credits and having acceptable GPA, attendance, and discipline record will
be allowed to walk in the graduation ceremony their senior year.
