While meeting the minimum standards for graduation is very important, students and families should focus on exceeding the minimum standards so students have a wide range of options and opportunities upon graduation.

A-G Requirements

Students interested in attending college, whether a two-year or a four-year college, should focus on meeting (and exceeding) the A-G course requirements necessary for admission to the California State University and University of California systems. Admission to many colleges and majors is very competitive and students who meet only the minimum requirements will be at a disadvantage for admissions, scholarships and merit-based financial aid. The University of California’s “A-G Guide” outlines the 15 courses needed to meet the eligibility requirements for admission.  (NOTE: Most students at UCLA, USC, Harvard , Stanford and other top universities will have taken 20+ A-G courses.)

Credit Recovery

While students should work hard to avoid failing a class, opportunities exist for students to earn credits for classes they didn’t pass. These opportunities include retaking a class during the summer or as space permits in a student’s schedule or by completing alternative online program, such as APEX, offered at the student’s school site.

Alternative Education

Alternate paths to graduation exist for students who are far behind in credits or who need an alternate setting that provides more support and services. These paths include alternative education placement or another path described in the district’s Student Wellness & Support Services section.
