Glasgow High School students will be able to graduate early next year

GLASGOW — Glasgow High School students will have the option of graduating early next school year provided they meet certain criteria.

The Glasgow Board of Education approved on second reading a policy on Monday regarding early graduation, as well as an application and verification form students must complete when seeking to graduate early.

In presenting the policy and application and verification form to the school board, Michelle Tinsley, supervisor of instruction/district assessment coordinator for the school district, shared a situation involving a student where early graduation could have been beneficial.

“Although I can't state a name, but when I was a counselor at Glasgow High School there was a student who had lost a parent and had the burden of taking care of a sibling,” she said, adding at that time there was no policy regarding early graduation in place, so the student remained in school and took care of a lot of adult activities.

“I would have been right by the student's side if they wanted early graduation,” she said.

To graduate early students must complete a minimum of 22 credits and all other state and local requirements.
