Certificate Of Proficiency/High School Equivalency   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees desires that every student have the opportunity to earn a high school diploma through successful completion of class work and Board-approved proficiency tests.

The Board, however, must point out that the California Legislature has provided two alternatives to the high school diploma: the High School Equivalency Certificate for individuals 18 or older and the Certificate of Proficiency for persons 16 or older or who have been in the 10th grade for a year or who are currently enrolled in the final semester of 10th grade. These certificates may be granted by the California Department of Education to individuals who pass the performance tests established by the Department.

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that District requirements relative to these alternatives to high school graduation are fulfilled.
