Equivalency Course List

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.  By completing an equivalency course, a student may meet subject 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.  However, colleges may require more standardized lab-based courses such as biology, physics and chemistry to meet this requirement for college entrance.
