New Reqs for the Class of 2014
Posted by novometro on June 11, 2009
Oakland Unified’s Governing Board approved a resolution Wednesday night that would align the district’s high school graduation requirements with the more demanding A-G requirements for admission to UC and CSU schools. The idea is to have the new rules in place for the graduating class of 2014.
At the moment only 32 percent of OUSD’s high school seniors meet the A-G requirement while the graduation rate for Oakland Unified is just over 50 percent. Some Oakland schools are better than others at readying students for enrollment in the state’s public universities. Below are the A-G passing rates for a few Oakland high schools.
Oakland High School: 47 percent
Oakland Technical High School: 47 percent
Skyline High School: 42 percent
Excel: 71 percent
Robeson: 20 percent
