Social Studies Graduation Requirements
All public high school students are required to meet statewide graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma. In Social Studies, students are required to earn 3.0 credits (per WAC 180-51-067: Section 4, a-d).
In accordance with the State Board of Education amended graduation requirements (WAC 180-51-067), the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction reviewed and revised the K-12 Social Studies Learning Standards, aligning them with the amended requirements, including the 0.5 civics credit required for graduation.
For more information about the changes, please view the State Board of Education website.
