    ANNOUNCEMENTS:

    Advanced Placement Tests:   As posted in the Los Angeles Times 4/12/2020: "AP tests will still take place, but they will be online, at-home tests.  They will generally cover material through early March and will be open-book and essay-based, according to the College Board. Each exam will last about 45 minutes. Although the College Board is modifying this year's AP exams, both the University of California and Cal State University systems will continue to award credit consistent with their existing policies for courses that students pass with a score of 3 or better.  Despite the truncated format, hundreds of colleges throughout the country have given similiar assurances."  Please visit  College Board for the most up-to-date information on AP and SAT tests.  Go here College Board AP Support for free online AP Classes and support.

    The UC Office of the President announced measures to relax undergraduate admissions requirements to “mitigate some of the extraordinary challenges students and their families face.” These measures include: 
    • Suspending the letter grade requirement for A-G courses completed in winter/spring/summer 2020 for all students, including UC’s most-recently admitted freshmen. 
    • Suspending the standardized test requirement for students applying for fall 2021 freshman admission. 
    • Providing that there will be no rescission of student admissions offers that result from students or schools missing official final transcript deadlines, and student retention of admission status through the first day of class until official documents are received by campuses. 
    California State University 
    The CSU released its amended admissions policies and practices, providing an overview of key changes based on student grade levels.
     
    For incoming college freshmen: 
    • Accepting transcripts for incoming freshmen through the fall 2020 term, and will accept unofficial or self-reported data due to extend school closures.  
    • Assessing and initially placing students in first-year english/math based on multiple measures:  high school college courses completed, GPAs and test scores (SBAC, ACT, SAT) that students have submitted thus far. 
    For high school juniors: 
    • CSU “recommends” all students enroll in a yearlong, senior-year English course and a mathematics/quantitative reasoning course.  
    • Suspension of the standardized test requirement for students applying for fall 2021 freshman admission. 
    For students in grades 8-10: 
    • Accepting “credit” or “pass” to satisfy A-G requirements completed during winter, spring, or summer 2020 terms.  All prior coursework must be graded and a grade C- or better for the course to satisfy A-G requirements.   
    • Grades of credit/pass or no credit/non-passing will not be included in the calculation of high school GPA.
