For each semester course offering which is completed successfully, with a “D” or better, five (5) credits of required or elective credits are issued.  To obtain credits an “A”, “B”, “C” or “D” grade is required.  If a course is repeated to improve a grade, credit will be assigned only to the higher grade for graduation purposes.

 

You must receive a grade of “C” of better to earn credit for the A-G requirement.

 

*All students must complete a course that meets the state content standards for Algebra I (EC 51225.5).

 

Six class periods per day, plus lunch, is the standard student schedule.

 

Seniors must be enrolled in 5 classes each semester.

 

THE FINAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MEETING GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
RESTS WITH THE STUDENT AND HIS/HER PARENTS.
