Students attend at least 1 semester of the graduating year at EPC.  Majority of courses taken in that semester are enrolled at EPC.  This is determined by administration.  Edwin Parr cannot accommodate students not attending EPC for graduation.  Those students will be eligible to graduate at the schools they attend.

Participation in the graduation ceremony is considered an extracurricular activity.  If a student has been suspended from school during the date of graduation they will not be eligible to take part in the grad ceremony.

A preliminary grad list will be created the first week of April, this will not be posted but students may inquire if they are on it.  If a student is not on that list they are to book a meeting with the career counselor or an administrator to discuss their situation and what needs to improve.

Administration of Edwin Parr Composite School, in extreme circumstances, can forgive a student from achieving one or more of the criteria listed above.  Once the administration is aware of the circumstances they will discuss and give a decision to allow the student to take part or uphold the lack of proper criteria being met and not allow the student to take part.  Parents will be notified by phone or email if a student is not eligible to take part in the grad ceremony.
