    AB 1806-Helping Homeless Youth Graduate

    Assembly Bill 167/216 allows Alvord Unified School District to exempt a student in foster care and probation youth from district graduation requirements that exceed state requirements if the pupil transfers to the district, or transfers from one high school or to another within a district, in the 11th or 12th grade; unless the district discovers that the student is reasonably able to complete the additional requirements in time to graduate from high school while they remain eligible for foster care benefits pursuant to the state law.

    AB 1806 allows Alvord Unified School District to exempt a student identified as a homeless youth from district graduation requirements that exceed state requirements if the pupil transfers to the district, or transfers from one high school or to another within a district in the 11th or 12 grade; unless the district discovers that the student is reasonable able to complete the additional requirements in time to graduate from high school.

    Foster, Homeless, and Probation Youth who have had multiple school placements during their high school career (11th and 12th grade) will be able to use the state minimum requirements of 130 credits to graduate. This significantly reduces the number of classes/credits required for graduation. The two bills also states that if the student is capable of completing the classes/credits they should be required to do so.
