Graduating High School Meet all SDUSD Graduation Requirements o 44 credits o Minimum 2.0 gpa (C average) o Computer Proficiency o Pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) Start taking in 10 th grade Test on 7-10 th grade material
What happens if I don’t meet these requirements? If you fail a class, you will need to retake it until you receive a passing grade. This repetition will often occur as an online recovery course (after school hours) or at adult education (night school, after hours); in addition to the regular work load you have CAHSEE: you have until 12 th grade to pass the parts of the exam you still need If you still do not meet requirements you will need to look into a “GED” or the General Education Development tests. Passing these tests will give you the equivalent to a hs diploma, but still require time and effort to study and pass. Better to put forth the effort and time to pass the class, and earn the credit, the FIRST time!!
