9800 Policy_High School Diplomas to Veterans

The Board of Education recognizes the service provided to the country and the individual sacrifices
made by veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

Since many of these veterans left high school in order to fight for their country, the Board wishes to
recognize their efforts by awarding a high school diploma.

The Board may award a high school diploma to a military veteran who meets the following criteria:

    A. The veteran is at least sixty-five (65) years of age.
 
    B. The veteran attended high school in the District or attended a high school in Wisconsin and is a resident of
        the School District.
 
    C. The veteran left high school before receiving a high school diploma to join the armed forces of the United
        States during a war period under 45.001(5), Wis. Stats.
 
    D. The veteran served on active duty under honorable conditions in the United States Armed Forces or in
        forces incorporated as part of the United States Armed Forces.
 
The Board may also award a high school diploma to a military veteran who has received a high school equivalency
diploma after serving on active duty under honorable conditions if criteria A. through C. above are also met.
 
If the veteran is deceased and satisfied criteria B. through D. above, the Board may award a diploma
posthumously and present that diploma to a surviving relative of the veteran.

The application for a veteran's diploma is available at the Office of Student Services.
