The Superintendent or designee shall develop a process by which courses are submitted to the University of California (UC) for review and certification in order to meet university admission criteria.  He/she shall maintain an accurate list of all current district high school courses that have been so certified and shall ensure that the list is provided annually to each student in grades 9-12 and that updated lists are made readily available.  (Education Code 66204)

At the beginning of each school year, the Superintendent or designee shall provide written notice to parents/guardians of students in grades 9-12 that, to the extent possible, shall not exceed one page in length and that includes all of the following:  (Education Code 51229)

  • A brief explanation of the college admission requirements

  • A list of the current UC and California State University (CSU) web sites that help students and their families learn about college admission requirements and that list high school courses that have been certified by UC as satisfying the requirements for admission to UC and CSU

  • A brief description of what career technical education is, as defined by the California Department of Education (CDE)

  • The Internet address for the portion of the web site of the CDE where students can learn more about career technical education

  • Information about how students may meet with school counselors to help them choose courses that will meet college admission requirements and/or enroll in career technical education courses

Counselors monitor the progress of students on a regular basis to meet student needs in three major areas:

  • academic development

  • career development

  • personal/social development

Counselors assist students in meeting graduation requirements and being prepared for post-graduation training, vocation and education options. Counselors works with teachers and administration, as well as parents and outside agencies.

Students and parents are invited to contact their counselor at any time and to set up an appointment when needed.
