Graduation Resources

The purpose of these documents is to provide guidance for policies and procedures regarding graduation. The Charter Institute at Erskine maintains the role of an authorizer and LEA. Each charter school within the Institute has the autonomy to develop policies and procedures individualized to meet the needs of the school, if those policies and procedures are consistent with State and Federal Laws, the school’s charter, as well as contract and Institute policies and procedures.  If there is a resource you would like to tweak to fit your school, send an email to and an editable version will be emailed to you.
