The above list gives a total of 16 1/2 credits.

Students not physically capable of participating in P.E. classes must have a physician’s written recommendation. *2 The additional 1/2 credit in social studies may be taken from the following: World Geography, Illinois Studies, Psychology, Sociology, Economics, or International Relations. *3 All Constitution tests must be passed as administered by the Social Studies Department/Special Education Department. *4 Consumer Education, Consumer Management, Economics, Ag Bus Management, or Interrelated Cooperative Education may be taken to meet the consumer education requirement. *5 One (1) unit or some combination equaling one unit. Grade-Level Status ● Grade-level status will be determined at the end of each academic year and will be as follows: ○ Sophomore - 6 credits

○ Junior - 12 credits ○ Senior - 18 credits

● Grade-level status is determined by credits earned, not how many years a student has attended PTHS. Unless otherwise approved by the Administration, only students who have earned junior or senior status and are on track to graduate will be able to attend prom and have access to select courses including those in the Livingston Area Career Center, Blended Learning, and On-line Learning.
