Certain courses are approved for equivalency for the purpose of meeting high school graduation requirements. For example, if a student takes one semester of Health through a class taught by the Issaquah School District, this would fulfill the semester state requirement for Health and a semester requirement for Career & Technical Education. Equivalency does not diminish the number of credits required for graduation; the student can choose the category in which to use that particular credit. Thus a student may meet graduation requirements at a faster pace, leaving more room in their schedule for other course options.

Please note that EQUIVALENCY may not apply for meeting minimum core requirements for college admissions. Example: Sports Medicine as taught in our schools will meet state high school requirements for the science requirements; however, colleges may require more standardized lab-based courses such as biology, physics and chemistry to meet this requirement for college entrance. Please see each individual high school for specific equivalency tables.
