Academic Credit Information

The following information provides an overview with how Oregon Outreach Academies break down the credits students earn when attending one of our schools.

CREDIT REQUIREMENTS

As a requirement to stay in the OOI program students must be in Academic Good Standing meaning students must complete at least the minimum number of credits per grading period, as set by each District’s program. OOI includes a service learning course that counts toward the CTE / Arts / 2nd Language requirement. This provides students with an opportunity to learn the value of contributing to their community through different forms of volunteering.

DIPLOMA

OOI meets all Oregon state standards and graduation requirements. When a student has met all credit and testing requirements, a student may be considered a graduate at any time during the school year. In June, Oregon Outreach Inc. will hold a graduation ceremony that will celebrate the achievements of all students that have graduated within the school year from all OOI sites. Students that graduate from Oregon Outreach will receive an Oregon standard diploma.
