A-G Coursework in High School for college
The UC and CSU schools require a 15-unit pattern of high school courses for admission as a college freshman. Each unit is equal to a year of study in a subject area. A grade of C or higher is required for each high school course you use to meet the subject requirements. It is important to prepare for these courses while in middle school.
Homework for Absent Students
HOMEWORK FOR ABSENT STUDENTS: Make sure your child has a “Buddy” or two in each class to call if he/she is absent for a day or two. If a child is going to be absent three days or more, a parent can call or fill out a form in the Magnet Office to request homework. A minimum of 24 hours must be allowed for teachers to prepare the work to be picked up, and you must make your own arrangements for pick-up. The office will be unable to send for your child’s friend.
