Elementary Schools

The Board of Education recognizes that a well-articulated sequence of courses fosters academic progress and makes the best possible use of instructional time. The Board shall adopt a course of instruction which sufficiently prepares students for the secondary school course of study required by state law. The Superintendent or designee shall keep the Board informed of any changes in the secondary school curriculum and shall solicit ways for expanding or improving our students' preparation for secondary education.

(cf. 6146.5 -Elementary School Promotion/Standards of Proficiency)

Secondary Schools

The Board shall adopt districtwide courses of instruction which respond to student needs, conform with district graduation requirements, and prepare students for higher educational opportunities. Courses of study shall also give students the opportunity to attain skills appropriate for entry-level employment in business and industry upon graduation from high school.

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that all otherwise qualified students have a timely opportunity, within the four years before graduation, to enroll in each course required for admission to California public colleges and universities.

(cf. 6146.1 -High School Graduation Requirements/Standards of Proficiency)
