Graduation Requirements:

These are accurate for courses that were taken through Piper High School only.  

Graduation requirements directions


These are currently being setup and checked for accuracy.  You are welcome to look at different endorsements and to see the requirements, but currently you cannot declare an endorsement.  This will change soon!  Although endorsements cannot yet be declared you can choose one and see what classes you still need to take and what you have already fulfilled!

This soon will allow students to declare an emphasis or concentration for their coursework – a bit like a college major, except Endorsements can be designed for both college and career preparation.  

As students take classes, they can monitor their progress toward completing their declared Endorsement. The system will automatically keep track of progress toward any Endorsement, so if a student’s interests or goals change, he or she can easily switch Endorsements or even work toward achieving multiple Endorsements.  

Examples of endorsements are: Piper Scholars Curriculum completer (11th-12th graders only), Information/ endorsement for qualified admissions, KS Regents Scholars curriculum completer, all CTE pathways to be a pathway completer...

Bonus! If a student unintentionally achieves the requirements for an additional Endorsement, the system will recognize this and automatically award the additional Endorsement.
