MDUSD High School Grad Requirements Increase

Sep 01, 2014 09:44PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

The Mt. Diablo Unified 2014-2015 school year brings an incremental increase in 
comprehensive high school graduation requirements. These new requirements will be 
phased in with a required 210 credits for the class of 2015 and 220 credits for the class of 
2016 and beyond. 
On March 9, 2010, the MDUSD Board of Education approved the elimination of summer 
school in order to save funds. The Board also approved a reduction of high school 
graduation requirements, beginning with the class of 2011, from 230 credits to 200 
credits at the five high schools. In addition, there was a reduction in the total number of 
credits needed for graduation from an alternative/adult education high school from 200 to 
180 credits. 
On September 11, 2013, the MDUSD Board of Education approved an increase in the graduation 
requirement from 200 to 220 credits at the comprehensive high schools and approved an increase 
in the graduation requirement from 180 to 200 credits for the alternative high schools/adult 
education programs. For the class of 2015, the 10 additional credits will be in math or elective 
courses. For the class of 2016 and beyond, the 20 additional credits will consist of 10 additional 
credits of math and 10 credits in elective courses. 
For comparison, both the Acalanes Union High School District and the Martinez Unified 
School Districts require 240 total credits in order to graduate. 
2013-14 graduation requirements: seniors (200 credits); juniors (210); sophomores 
(220); freshmen (220).
