The SFUSD Policy Change That Will Help Foster Youth Graduate With A Diploma

Earlier this year, San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) became the first school district in the state to grant high school diplomas to students who did not pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE). With this change, more students left SFUSD with a high school diploma, enabling them to pursue postsecondary education or join the workforce with a secondary credential.

New Decision Could Dramatically Change Graduation Outcomes for Disadvantaged Youth

On August 14, the San Francisco Board of Education amended the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD)'s graduation requirements, a decision that immediately grants diplomas to 107 SFUSD students who received a Certificate of Completion instead of a diploma for the 2014-2015 school year, as a result of not having passed both sections of the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE).
