COLLEGE AND CAREER TECHNICAL INFORMATION NIGHT FOR CURRENT JUNIORS AND THEIR PARENTS: THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 7:00 P.M.

Don’t miss this great opportunity!  The evening will begin in the Brunelle Theater and continue in classrooms for breakout sessions.  There are representatives from UC, CSU, Private Colleges and Community College.  There are also workshops about financial aid and vocational opportunities.  All juniors and their parents should plan to attend.

 

IMPORTANT SENIOR INFORMATION

A letter will be sent out soon to all seniors and their parents about graduation and a senior event.  If a senior has a D or F in a class required for graduation, or if they have not completed their community service, the letter will indicate that the student is at risk of not graduating.  There is still time for all seniors to pass their classes and to complete community service.  “Senioritis” can be common at this time of year.  Students, you have worked hard – it is important to keep your focus.  Please see me if you need support to meet your goals. 

 

SUMMER SCHOOL

I am meeting with students who need to enroll in summer school to remediate a grade.  An information

sheet will be sent home with the dates, times and location of summer school.  If you have any questions, please contact me at 757-5333, ext. 370 or mpaulson@djusd.net

CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL PROFICIENCY EXAM (CHSPE)

The CHSPE is an examination, which assesses a student’s proficiency in the basic reading, writing and mathematics skills taught in the public high schools.  If a student passes the examination, the California State Board of Education will award a Certificate of Proficiency, which by state law is equivalent to a high school diploma (although not equivalent to completing all coursework required for regular graduation from high school).  The test is being offered on Saturday, June 15th . The regular registration deadline is May 17th (receipt date) and costs $130.  The late Registration deadline is May 31st (receipt date) and costs $155.  The emergency registration deadline is June 11th (receipt date) and costs $180.  For more information or to register on line, visit the website at http://www.chspe.net
