Graduation Requirements

To ensure all LAUSD graduates have the option to enroll directly into a university and be prepared for a career, the District has implemented a College and Career Readiness through A-G initiative. LAUSD has aligned its graduation requirements with the California State University (CSU) A-G requirements, beginning with the graduating class of 2016. Students must earn a grade of "D" or better in "A-G" courses, and meet California Department of Education Requirements as well as satisfying additional LAUSD requirements for graduation. We are making the high school diploma a document that gives students the choice to transition straight into a college or into a career.

Career Pathway



·         Students in the graduating classes of 2017 - 2021 must pass all courses with a grade of "D" or better.

·         Semester courses earn 5 credits. Yearlong courses earn 10 credits. Exams do not earn any credits. 

Note: “Validation” refers to the granting of “a-g” credit when a student successfully completes advanced work (earning a grade of “C” or better) in an area of sequential knowledge. Validation does not meet numerical credit requirements, satisfy CDE requirements, or meet course enrollment requirements in any subject other than Language Other Than English (LOTE).

Work Permits

Please direct any student who needs a work permit during winter break to the Work Experience Education Office located at the LAUSD Beaudry Central Office (333 South Beaudry Avenue, 1st Floor, Los Angeles, CA  90017)- this includes all home-school, private and charter school students.  We will process student work permits for any closed school within LAUSD boundaries from December 19, 2016 to December 23, 2016 and then from January 3, 2017 to January 6, 2017.  Our hours are 8:00 am to 4:55 pm. 

Please remind students that the work permits will be temporary and will expire January 23, 2017; your school can issue a permanent one once they come back from winter break.  In addition, please let your students know that they need to bring: 

1)    A completed work permit application (B1-1)

2)    A current school ID with birth date on it (if the ID does not have a birth date, then they need to also bring proof of their birth date)
