If after completing at least two years of high school a student has failed to pass
at least one-half unit from three subsections in section 15.1-21-02.1 or has a grade point average at or below the twenty-fifth percentile of other students
in the district who are enrolled in the same grade, the student may request that the
student's career advisor, guidance counselor, or principal meet with the student and
the student's parent to determine if the student should be permitted to pursue an
optional high school curriculum, in place of the requirements set forth in section 15.1-21-02.1. If a student's parent consents in writing to the student pursuing the optional high
school curriculum, the student is eligible to receive a high school diploma upon completing
the following requirements:
1. Four units of English language arts from a sequence that includes literature, composition,
2. Two units of mathematics;
3. Two units of science;
4. Three units of social studies, which may include up to one-half unit of North Dakota
studies and one-half unit of multicultural studies;
5. a. One unit of physical education; or
b. One-half unit of physical education and one-half unit of health;
