Graduation Requirements Exception
Exemption for 2020-2021 Juniors and Seniors of District Graduation Requirements


Finally, the law requires that high school students who were in their third or fourth year of high school during the 2020-2021 school year, and who were not on track to graduate in four years, may be exempt from our district’s graduation requirements that exceed statewide requirements. It also requires high schools to provide credit recovery support for these students, including the option to retake courses, or to enroll in a fifth year of high school, to complete state graduation requirements.

How to Apply

Sacramento City Unified will contact students eligible for this exemption. You do not need to contact the district or the school sites.
