Certificate Of Proficiency/High School Equivalency   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board 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 (2) alternatives to the high school diploma: the High School Equivalency Certificate for individuals 18 or older and the Certificate of Proficiency for students 16 or 17 years old. These certificates may be granted by the State Department of Education to individuals who pass the performance tests established by the Department.

The Superintendent shall ensure that the district requirements relative to these alternatives to high school graduation are fulfilled.
