All 8th Graders Please Complete!

How much Spanish do you know?

In order to graduate from high school you are required to know and/or learn a language other than English. Several options are available to you according to your interests and/or experience with a World Language.

If you know enough Spanish, you may only need to take ONE year of Spanish in high school instead of two. If you qualify, you may choose to take just one year of Spanish, or you may continue your Spanish studies to the Advanced Placement (AP) level where you can receive a weighted grade and college credit.

This survey will help us identify the best course option for you once you leave your current school.

Please Complete: California School Parent Survey

As part of our Local Control Accountability Plan, our District is required to complete the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), the California School Staff Survey (CSSS), and the California School Parent Survey (CSPS). The surveys are anonymous.
