General Diploma




Beginning with students who enter high school in
2007-2008, completion of Core 40 becomes a
graduation requirement.
A general diploma is only available to students
whose parents feel students are unable to
complete the Core 40 curriculum.
To graduate with less than Core 40, a formal Optout process must be completed.
Beginning in fall 2011, Core 40 will be an
admissions requirement to attend a public fouryear university in Indiana (Core 40 is a minimum
requirement – colleges may have additional
admissions requirements).
Core 40 Opt-Out Triggers



A parent may request that a student be exempted from
the Core 40 curriculum and be required to complete the
general diploma to graduate, or
The student does not pass at least three (3) courses
required under the Core 40 curriculum, or
The student receives a score on the graduation
examination that is in the twenty-fifth percentile or lower
when taking the graduation exam for the first time.
***If the decision is made to opt-out of Core 40, the student
is required to complete the course/credit requirements
for a general diploma and the career/academic
sequence the student will pursue is determined.
Core 40 Opt-Out Process
The student, the student’s parent/guardian,
and the student’s counselor meet to discuss
the student’s progress.
 The student’s career/course plan is reviewed.
 The student’s parent/guardian determines
whether the student will achieve greater
educational benefits by completing the
general curriculum or the Core 40 curriculum.
 Opt-out form signed by parent and student
