Beginning in the spring of 10th grade, students take the High School Graduation Qualifying Exam (HSGQE). The HSGQE is a competency test in reading, writing and math. A student must pass all three sections of the HSGQE (in addition to meeting the district's graduation requirements) to obtain a high school diploma. Once a student has passed a section of the exam (reading, writing or math), he/she does not ave to take that section again.
The HSGQE is offered in the fall for 11th and 12th grade students who need to take or retake all or part of the exam.
The HSGQE is offered in the spring for all 10th graders and for 11th and 12th graders who need to take or retake all or part of the exam.
