Withdrawal Information

If you are checking out of Washington High School, your parent or guardian must come into the office and fill out a Withdrawal Form and show a picture ID.  If the parent or guardian is not listed on the Emergency Card, they will not be able to sign you out.

On your last day of school, you will see the Registrar to receive a checkout sheet which you will take to all your classes, the library and the account clerk for signatures. All textbooks, library books and your student ID must be turned in.  The account clerk will also check for any other debts you may have incurred.  YOU CANNOT CHECK OUT WITHOUT ALL THE REQUIRED SIGNATURES.

At the end of the day, you will bring the completed checkout sheet to the Registrar. You will be given a copy of the checkout sheet and a copy of your transcript to take to your new school.

If you owe money or have missing books, your new school will receive a copy of your debt.


Changing schools during high school can have serious implications due to the fact that students must earn credits each semester to earn a high school diploma.  Before you check your student out of Washington High School, it is suggested that you contact the high school your student will be attending and ask the following:

When does your semester end, or has it ended already?

  • If the semester has not yet ended and your student will enroll in like courses in the new school, find out if moving your student at this time will allow him/her to earn full credit for all courses passed at the end of the semester.
  • If the semester at the new school has already ended, then your student will not receive credit for an entire semester since the semester was not completed at Washington High School before moving.  Consider doing whatever is possible to avoid losing a full semester of credits which may mean remaining at Washington High School until the semester is completed before moving to another high school.  Otherwise, your student would be required to retake these classes in summer school.  Failure to make up these classes or the lack of availability of class makeup opportunities in the new school could jeopardize completing the high school graduation requirements on time.
