To All Parents, Students and Former Students:
We want to reach out to you to share important news about a new law that suspends the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) for the classes of 2016-2018 and allows students from the classes of 2006-2015, who met all graduation requirements, with the exception of CAHSEE, to receive their diploma.
More than 350 former students from across the district have been identified as eligible for a diploma. Although the CAHSEE requirement was enacted in 2004, it first pertained to graduates from the class of 2006. We are working to contact each eligible former student; however, some may have moved and/or we may not have contact information.
Should you know of a former EGUSD student who could be eligible, please have them contact the registrar at the last high school they attended to inquire. The school’s registrar will take their name and will research that student’s record. After the registrar confirms that the student has met all local and state graduation requirements that were applicable at the time he or she completed grade twelve, the high school will then issue the student a new transcript and a high school diploma. Diplomas will be available for issuance starting in late January 2016.
New Attendance Autodialer
Starting January 15th, 2016, Kerr Middle School will be using a new automated calling system. This new system will be calling you on your home and cell phones when your child is absent from school and the absence has not been cleared. Calls will be made at multiple times during the day to ensure that you are contacted. If you receive one of these phone calls, please contact your school during regular school hours to ensure they have correct right information regarding your child's absence.
As a reminder, when you child is going to be absent, please let the school know first thing in the morning so that you don’t receive any unnecessary calls
