We are committed to high standards and differentiated instruction so that all students have an opportunity to succeed. During a student’s final semester a $25 fee must be paid to cover the costs for diploma and cap and gown.
Students in the Whitman-Hanson Regional High School day program as well as students from neighboring towns are able to utilize the WH CES for credit recovery.
Credit Recovery for Other School Districts
Students taking courses for make-up credit only must pay for courses in full, and approval from a school official at the student’s school district will also be necessary to enroll in the CES for make-up credit. No student is allowed to take more than three courses during any given semester. Students may take up to two Edgenuity courses at a time.
Please note: students who do not reside in Whitman or Hanson are not eligible for the diploma track through Whitman-Hanson CES.

RULES AND REGULATIONS
Students will be expected to adhere to the Code of Conduct that is set forth by the Whitman-Hanson Community Evening School. Failure to do so will result in the immediate withdrawal from the program without a refund. The program director and supervisor reserve the right to remove any student from the program at any time.
To be successful, students are expected to be in school every session: to be in every scheduled class on time; and to be ready, willing and able to work to the best of their abilities in each scheduled class throughout the semester. Students are allowed only two (2) absences, per course, each semester. An absence will be given for every two tardies that are 15 minutes or less. Students who are more than 15 minutes tardy to a class will have an official absence recorded on the attendance record. Make up day(s) are scheduled to give students an opportunity to maintain credit in the class. If a student does not attend the scheduled make-up time or if more than two classes, in any course, a family meeting will be held to address potential loss of credit. If a student is going to be absent, or tardy, to class he or she shall call the absence in to 781-618-7410.
