New Criteria for Participating in Commencement Ceremony

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we start the school year, we would like to give you some very important information regarding your child’s graduation requirements and eligibility to walk in the graduation ceremony. 

Beginning with the class of 2021 (current 11th graders), students who are missing credits at the time of graduation will not be allowed to walk with their class and participate in the graduation ceremony.  It will be required for all graduating seniors to have met all state and district graduation requirements by seniors’ last day in May to participate in commencement.  Please note that this is a change from past years, where some seniors (needing 1 credit) could attend summer school were allowed to participate in commencement. 

If your son or daughter is currently behind in credits, we encourage you to schedule a meeting with their counselor to devise an academic plan toward graduating on time. For information on district and state graduation requirements, please visit our district website, www.dearbornschools.org, and look for Policy and Guidelines under District Info.  If you have any questions, please contact the Edsel Ford High School Graduation Intervention Specialist, Mr. Naimi, at 313-827-7877.

Executive Director of Student Achievement, Dearborn Public Schools



أعزائي الآباء والأوصياء ،

مع بداية العام الدراسي ، نود أن نقدم لك بعض المعلومات الهامة للغاية فيما يتعلق بمتطلبات تخرج أبنائكم و أهليتهم للمشاركة في حفل التخرج.

بداية مع صف خريجي العام  الدراسي 2021 (طلاب الصف الحادى عشر حاليًا) ، لن يُسمح للطلاب الذين ينقصهم أي من المواد المطلوبة للتخرج (الرسوب في المواد الدراسية) في وقت التخرج بالسير مع صفهم والمشاركة في حفل التخرج. سيكون مطلوبًا من جميع المتخرجين أن يستوفوا جميع متطلبات التخرج في الولاية المديرية بحلول اليوم الدراسي الأخير لهم في شهر أيار/مايو للمشاركة في الحفل. يرجى الانتباه إلى أن هذا مغاير لما جرت عليه العادة في السنوات الماضية ، حيث كان يُسمح لبعض المتخرجين (الذين يحتاجون إلى مادة واحد او مادتين) بالالتحاق بالمدرسة الصيفية و السماح لهم بالمشاركة في حفل التخرج.

اذا كان ابنك أو ابنتك متأخرين حاليًا في دراستهم، فنحن نشجعك على تحديد موعد لعقد اجتماع مع مستشارهم لوضع خطة أكاديمية تقودهم نحو التخرج في الوقت المحدد. للحصول على معلومات حول متطلبات التخرج المحددة من قبل الولاية و المديرية، يرجى زيارة موقعنا على شبكة الإنترنت ،www.dearbornschools.org, والبحث عن خيار ع السياسة والإرشادات تحت باب معلومات المديرية. إذا كانت لديكم أي أسئلة ، يرجى الاتصال بأخصائي التخرج في مدرسة أدسل فورد ، السيد نعيمي على الرقم 313-827-7877.

مع كل التقدير,

د: جيل تشوكول 

المديرة التنفيذية لانجازات الطلاب ، مدارس ديربورن الرسمية



2019-2020 AAYSP Mentoring Program

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Students at Edsel Ford have the opportunity to participate in an in-school mentoring program. In this free program, your child is “matched” with a volunteer professional from the program sponsored by the Community Partners for Education and the American Association of Yemeni Scientists & Professionals (AAYSP) with partnership of Dearborn Public Schools. The professional will spend some time with your child in engaging and fun activities that explore various themes of self-confidence, communication, decision- making, and academic success.

The meetings will take place once a month (Second Wednesday) at EFHS and will be between 15 and 20 minutes during first hour. Our first meeting will take place on October 11, 2018.

If you would like your child to have this opportunity, please fill out the permission slip available in the counseling office or download it below and return it to the school as soon as possible; there are limited spaces available.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact Mr. Naimi @ 313-827-7877 or program coordinator Adeeb Mozip @ 313-213-2782
