Curriculum and Instruction

ROSE Cohort & Graduation Requirements

  • For ALL students, there are two Arizona State requirements for a High School Diploma:
    • Completion of the state required cohort credit requirements AND
    • Passing the three sections of the AIMS Test (Math, Writing, and Reading).
  • Graduation requirements established by the Arizona State Board Education are based on the student's actual graduation year and not the student's cohort. The year a student is expected to graduate determines which cohort graduation requirement's must be met.
