A Nicolet High School senior who drops out in the second semester would have until he or she is 21 years old to make up credits and receive a Nicolet diploma, under a policy to be developed. The proposed policy would need School Board approval.
Counseling department leader Nader Raad told the Nicolet School Board Curriculum Committee on Wednesday that people would rather have a diploma from Nicolet than one from the MATC adult high school or a GED.
He knows of a student who would have graduated in 1992 or 1993 who requested a diploma, he said.
Nicolet has no guidelines for handling such requests and the counseling department has tried to be accommodating, Raad said.
"But it's time consuming," he said and he hoped the School Board would establish some kind of limits.
The committee will ask the Wisconsin Association of School Boards to formulate a policy. The association is already helping Nicolet update all its policies.
The association will be asked to limit the number of classes still needed to six and the time to age 21. Six classes is a normal semester load.
