The Issaquah School District requires that students will understand and apply current and emerging technologies to extend their personal abilities and productivity. This technology graduation requirement specifies that students must be able to demonstrate a minimum proficiency level in technology.
The district recommends that students meet this requirement by successful completion of a computer science class* by the end of their 10th grade year. Should a student's schedule prohibit meeting that timeline the class may be taken during the 11th or 12th grade year. * See below for current classes which meet the requirement.
The class of 2012 and beyond are required to earn 1.0 CTE credit.
There are seven options for students to meet the minimum technology proficiency graduation requirement which does not in itself provide CTE credit.
