"A-G" Requirements For 7th Graders

To continue its fostering of a “college-going” culture through access and equity at all of its high schools, the Los Angeles Unified School District, beginning in the 2006-2007 school year, will provide A-G courses for every student who requests enrollment into any course in the “A-G” course sequence provided the course requirements have been met.  Beginning in the 2008- 2009 school year, entering 9th graders (our 7th graders) must complete the A-G course sequence to graduate.

What are “A-G” Courses?  The University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU) systems both require high school students to successfully complete a 15-unit pattern of courses know as “A-G” subjects as a condition for meeting admission requirements as first-time freshman.  At least 7 of the 15-unit courses must be taken during a student’s last two years of high school.

In order to address the new “A-G” requirements there will be a mandatory meeting for 7th grade, A & B Track parents, on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 at 6:00 p.m. with Mrs. Hirotsu, principal, Mr. Duong, Assistant Principal, SCS, and your child’s counselor.   Please attend this important meeting to fully understand this new Los Angeles Unified School District Board adopted policy. As childcare will not be available at this event, please bring ONLY your King Middle School student and no other children in your family.  If you have any questions, please call the Guidance Office at (323) 664-1176, extension 115.
