FARMINGTON — The Davis School Board took the next step in adopting a new policy for students in danger of not graduating from high school.

The addition to the district’s graduation policy, which was passed on first reading on Tuesday, introduces a Davis School District Diploma as opposed to a diploma from a specific high school.

Graduation from individual high schools requires 27 credit hours. In contrast, the district diploma requires only 24 hours of credit as required by state law, and a completed citizenship contract approved by the school’s case management team.

Students must be enrolled in their boundary high school and complete all work by September 30 of that year to qualify. Students obtaining the district diploma would not be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies.

The final reading on the proposed policy change is scheduled for the next board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 17.
