Umatilla High School Diploma Requirements

Diploma Requirements

In January of 2007, the Oregon State Board of Education voted to adopt new high school graduation requirements. These new requirements are designed to better prepare each student for success in college, work, and citizenship. To earn an Oregon diploma, students will need to successfully complete the credit requirements, demonstrate proficiency in the Essential Skills, and meet the personalized learning requirements. Students will also have the option to earn credit for proficiency. A phase-in schedule (2007–2014) was created to allow students, families, schools and teachers to adequately prepare to meet these new requirements.
