What are the requirements for including Washington State History (WSH)/Pacific Northwest (PNW) courses taken prior to high school on the transcript?
Washington State History (WSH)/Pacific Northwest (PNW) courses taken in grades 7 or 8 can only be included in the Academic Record section on the high school transcript for high school credit if it is a high school academic level course. WSH is a graduation requirement; however, it is not always taken in high school or given at a high school academic level and credit cannot automatically be given. It is a local determination if districts want to offer it at a high school academic level when the course is offered in 7th or 8th grade. If the Washington State History (WSH)/Pacific Northwest (PNW) course is at a middle school academic level, then it is not listed with the other courses in the Academic Record section of the transcript; however, since it is a state graduation requirement, a “Met” designation is noted under the “Additional State Requirements” section.
Note: CVA students who take Washington State History as 7-8th graders will see "MET" on their high school graduation requirements. CVA middle school does not offer WSH as a high school level course.
