Community Info

January 21, 2015
Dear BOBCAT  Nation,
A focal point of our Advisory Class is to assist students in their academic planning.  Last week, our students reviewed the progress they are making on their high school requirements and completed their Academic Learning Plan.  The purpose of this exercise was to one, ensure that students understand what the CUSD high school graduation requirements are and two, assist students to make decisions on their upcoming 2015-16 course selection opportunity, which will take place mid-March, 2015.

An important thing to recognize is that beginning with the graduating Class of 2017, students must complete the 15 courses known as University of California and California State University “a-g” requirements.  The courses required are as follows:
Academic Discipline # of Years
Required / Recommended
a History / Social Science
One year of World History, one-half year of US History and one-half year of American Government
b English 4
c Mathematics
Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II
d Laboratory Science
Biology, Chemistry, and Physics
e Foreign Language
Two years of the same language other than English.
f Visual and Performing Arts
One year chosen from dance, theater, music, or visual art.
g College Prep Elective
Two semesters of courses from the A-F list beyond those used to satisfy the requirements.

While the UC/CSU “a-g” courses serve as a framework, CUSD also requires that students take an additional year of History/Social Science, which leads students to take 3 years of this academic discipline, and they must also pass Algebra II to earn a high school diploma.  Additionally, four years of Physical Education are required, unless they pass the California Fitness Test, which is administered in the spring, then students only need to take two years of P.E. 

The Sage Creek staff will continue to work with our students to keep them well informed of their academic progress and I invite you to engage in conversations focused on how your child is progressing on their Academic Learning Plan.
