Diplomas for Veterans

The Clover Park School District acknowledges that there were veterans who did not finish high school due to their military service in World War II, the Korean Conflict or the Vietnam Era. In recognition of the sacrifice of these veterans, the Clover Park School District through Clover Park High School, Lakes High School or the Harrison Preparatory School will issue a high school diploma to veterans who have substantial ties to the Clover Park School District and who did not finish high school due to their military service.

The district will issue a high school diploma to an honorably discharged member of the armed forces of the United States who was scheduled to graduate from high school, but who left high school before graduation to serve in World War II, the Korean Conflict or the Vietnam era.

To be eligible for a diploma, the veteran or his or her representative must fill out the application provided by the Washington State Department of Veteran Affairs, provide evidence of eligibility, and have substantial ties to the district.

Veterans who have earned a high school equivalency certificate or who are deceased may also be eligible to receive a high school diploma.

The superintendent will determine those veterans who have substantial ties to the district. Examples include, but are not limited to: living or having lived in the district, having attended school in the district, having children or other descendents who have attended school in the district, having been employed by the district or volunteering in the district.
