·         BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS FOR ALL SENIORS:  It is important that all seniors focus on academics, behavior, and community during their final semester of high school.  Seniors may be tempted to make poor choices during their last year of high school.  Unwise choices jeopardize the senior’s education and can, sometimes, even endanger a life.  Expectations of all seniors remain high through the graduation ceremony.  They need to achieve academically, behave appropriately, and be positive, active members of the community.  Those who choose to not meet these expectations will be disciplined.  Disciplinary action may include not participating in the commencement ceremony.  D. Kirksey

·         CREDIT REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION:  Members of the Class of 2014 are required to earn 49 specific credits to graduate.  Parents, please contact the academic records counselor, Ms. Politi, at 402-557-3394 or if you have questions about your son or daughter’s credit standing.  You are also encouraged to keep in touch with individual teachers.  Teachers may be contacted by phoning 402-557-3300 and leaving a message for them to return your call, or you can email them directly by going to the Central High website at >CONTACT US.  Grade and attendance information are available on the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  D. Kirksey
