SENIOR CHECK OUT STEPS:
We will pass out your formal check-out forms during the week of May 13th to your 2

begin. The check-out form is due to your Government or Economics teacher by
Wednesday May 22, 2019.
● Be prepared to clear all fines with the finance clerk before you check out.
Absolutely all fines must be cleared prior to graduation.
● You must complete the senior survey (directions will be provided at the beginning
of May) and have Mrs. Escobar, in the College and Career Center, verify you have
completed the survey during break, lunch or afterschool.
● Students who are enrolled in an online course, Community College, and/or
Independent Study, and who plan to use those credits for graduation, must have
a copy of their report card attached to their check-out form to verify that they
