Students can access the Academics page to find important forms needed throughout their high school career. Below are the graduation requirements for students at Sandburg High School.
AREAS OF STUDY
The Consumer Education requirement may be fulfilled by completing Consumer Economics, General Business, Economics, AP Micro-Economics and AP Macro-Economics
ELECTIVES - Art, Foreign Language, Music, Business, Applied Tech or Family & Consumer Science
3.5 (7 semesters)
A passing grade in American Government indicates successful completion of the Constitution requirement
Writing Intensive Course
Two courses must be approved as "Writing Intensive Courses" - one must be an English course and one may be provided as part of approved course - this does not increase the number of required courses
The Service Learning requirement allows students the opportunity to enrich and extend their learning through recognition of the needs of their schools and communities
25 hours for Class of 2020 & Beyond
Note - English and Math courses are sequential and each is designed as a prerequisite for the next course in the sequence. Students failing a course in Math or English MUST REPEAT the course successfully before continuing in the sequence. Summer School is the best option to make up these types of deficiencies.
FAFSA Graduation Requirement
Completion of the FAFSA is now a requirement for graduation in the State of Illinois. Federal Financial Aid forms are available for completion at www.fafsa.gov. Parents and students are required to use their tax information from 2019 while completing the form. Those choosing not to complete it, will be required to complete the ISBE Waiver Form and submit it to Ms. McFarland (email@example.com).
