SCHS Student Handbook

Promotion & Rentention Policy

In order to graduate from a Springfield Public Schools high school or alternative high school, students, in addition to having the required number of credits, must also meet the competency determination as measured by the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS). Students who fail the English, Mathematics, or Science sections of the MCAS or who do not earn the required graduation credits are not eligible for a standard diploma.
