Diploma and Alternative Certificate Options



The Oregon Administrative Rules provide that school districts shall award a diploma to students upon fulfillment of all state and local district credit competency, and attendance requirements.  The standards also allow the granting of an alternative document identifying acquired minimum competencies to students having met some, but not all graduation requirements.  All members of a graduation class, whether they receive a standard diploma or an alternative document, are allowed to participate in commencement exercises and receive the appropriate document in that ceremony.  Roseburg Public School District awards the following diplomas and alternative certificates:

  • Standard Diploma
  • Modified Diploma
  • Extended Diploma
  • Certificate of Achievement
  • Certificate of Attendance


  • Graduation Requirements - District Policy
  • Regular High School Diploma

Extended Diploma

Roseburg Public Schools offers an extended diploma only to students who have demonstrated the inability to meet the full set of academic content standards even with reasonable modifications and accommodations. Students must have a documented history of an inability to maintain grade level achievement due to significant learning and instructional barriers or have a documented history of a medical condition that creates a barrier to achievement, and participate in an alternate assessment or have a serious illness or injury that changes the student’s ability to participate in grade level activities.
