Grad Requirements for Homeless / Foster Youth
WASCO UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT
Under the following Assembly Bills students in transition have special rights to help them remain on track for high school graduation:
- AB 167/216 - students identified as foster
- AB 1806 - students living in a homeless situation
- AB 2306 - students transitioning from a juvenile court school
Students in transition (foster youth, students in homeless situations, and those transitioning from a juvenile court school) who transfer schools after their second year of high school may be eligible to graduate by completing the minimum California state graduation requirements if they are not reasonably able to complete all Wasco Union High School District graduation requirements by the end of their fourth year of high school. Completing second year of high school is defined as either a)completing two years of high school; or b) completing sufficient high school credits to be considered a high school junior or senior.
Students who graduate under AB 167/216, AB 1806, or AB 2306 do not have to complete additional Wasco Union High School District requirements, which requires a total of 220 credits.
