Curriculum Guide - Graduation Requirements

To prepare Michiganís students with the knowledge and skills needed for the jobs in the 21st Century, the State of Michigan has enacted a rigorous set of statewide graduation requirements, the Michigan Merit Curriculum, that are among the best in the nation. By meeting these requirements, graduates from the Lake Linden-Hubbell School District will be well-prepared for future success in college and the workplace.  

To graduate with a diploma from the Lake Linden-Hubbell School District, a student must pass each of the classes listed below, and earn the minimum number of credits.  Students must also diligently plan, prepare for, and complete either the Michigan Merit Examination or the equivalent MI-Access tests as scheduled by the district.

Students enrolled in the Special Education program may have these requirements altered through their IEPís or through a personal curriculum, however such alterations may result in the students earning a certificate of completion instead of a diploma.  Such alterations should be discussed thoroughly by the IEP team so that all possible ramifications are understood.

***There are a variety of ways to meet this requirement, including any class from the Applied Arts, Performing Arts, or Visual Arts sections of the course catalog, as well as several virtual classes.
