In the Winter of 2016, the Colorado State Board of Education and Colorado Commission on Higher Education adopted the following goal for high school graduates:
"Colorado high school graduates demonstrate the knowledge and skills (competencies) needed to succeed in postsecondary settings and to advance in career pathways as lifelong learners and contributing citizens."
Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 works to provide students successful pathways to follow to achieve their individual dreams.
Each local school board has the authority to establish local high school graduation requirements that meet or exceed the Colorado Graduation Guidelines.
In pursuit of its mission to ensure that all students reach their learning potential, the Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 Board of Education established graduation requirements that can be found in the Board policy.
