IMPORTANT POLICY INFORMATION:
- Students must also pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) and complete Algebra 1 or its equivalent in order to earn a high school diploma. – Contact your guidance counselor for specific information.
- Eligibility for participation in Athletic sports and before and after school Drama/Theater and Speech requires a 2.0 GPA and no F’s.
- Incomplete grades will automatically change to “F’s” after 10 school days.
- Report cards and transcripts will be held for any fees owed to San Lorenzo Valley High School or any other high school in California. Fees/Fines may only be cleared through the person to whom the fee/fine is due. The Registrar can only remove the fee from the computer and issue a report card upon the student/parent presenting written proof of payment.
- Changing classes: Students have the opportunity to request changes before each semester and up to 20 school days into the semester (although this length of time can be detrimental to one’s success in a class). We do not accept requests for teacher changes.
- Participation in before and after school sports teams earns elective credit. Two years on non-elective Physical Education must be completed as well.
