Courses of Study



The Governing Board 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 study that ensures smooth transitions among the schools and leads to the fulfillment of District graduation requirements. Secondary school courses shall prepare students for higher education opportunities and also give them the opportunity to attain skills for entry-level employment in business and industry.

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that all otherwise qualified students have a timely opportunity, during the four (4) years before graduation, to enroll in each course required for admission to California public colleges and universities. (Education Code 51228)
