Approved Courses and Institutions for Summer Advancement 

as of 2/12/19

The list in the above link is a fairly comprehensive list of courses and institutions that are most commonly used for Advancement purposes.  The information presented there is accurate as of the above date.  However, it is the student's/parent's responsibility to verify that institutions still have the necessary accreditation and that courses are still UC approved by going to the links given in the document prior to enrolling in a course.

If you have questions about a specific course or institution that you do not see on the list, check first to see if they have the necessary accreditation,  UC approval and that they issue letter grades and official transcripts.  If they don't, then they probably are not acceptable.

If students have questions, they should confirm eligibility with their counselor prior to enrolling in the course.

NOTE: An updated list of courses that can be used for Graduation Requirement Fulfillment will be posted by February 20.

 

Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District began implementing new Personalized Learning options at our middle and high schools. The intent of these options is to provide flexibility and options for middle and high school students and families, increase overall student wellness, and ultimately improve  working conditions for staff by lowering class sizes at our middle and high schools.

Based on feedback from students, parents, staff and board members, we have refined these options over the past several months. In the coming weeks and months, we will be sharing more details and specifics with our middle and high school students, staff and parents. Additionally, information will also be shared at the Course Registration Information Nights at each high school.

For Middle Schools  

Option to Take 6 or 7 Classes

Middle school students (and families) will have the option of taking 6 or 7 classes. No student would have to reduce the number of classes from 7 unless they choose to do so.

Summer Option for Promoted 8th Graders

Upon completing 8th grade, students will be eligible to take summer school courses that will appear on their high school transcript and will count towards high school graduation credit.
 

For High Schools 

Graduation Credit for Online, Off-Campus and College Courses

No more than the equivalent of 40 high school credits combined from college courses, private instruction, or out-of-district public school courses may be transferred onto the high school transcript.

  • Students are limited to 20 credits of outside coursework in one curricular area.
  • A maximum of 20 credits per academic year may be placed onto the SRVUSD transcript.

Summer School Program through SRVUSD

SRVUSD is expanding its 2019 summer school program to offer remediation, advancement, and courses needed for graduation requirements.  

Expanded Language School Program

Language School Programs provide credit towards graduation for world languages that are not currently taught at SRVUSD schools. We will look to expand the current course and language offerings.

Internships

Student internships will be eligible for credit towards graduation on official SRVUSD transcripts.

Number of Credits Needed for Graduation

Beginning with the Class of 2019, the total number of credits required for graduation has been reduced from 240 to 220 by reducing the elective requirement by 20 credits.

Change in the Minimum Six-Period Day Requirement for High School Students

Beginning this school year, the minimum six-period day requirement was reduced to a minimum five-period period day to allow students more flexibility in their schedules and to align with  the reduction in the number of credits required for graduation. As a result, students will be able to take 5, 6 or 7 on-campus courses in high school.

For Both Middle and High Schools

Flexible Physical Education Requirements

SRVUSD will provide flexible PE credits for Independent Study Physical Education (grades 6-12), Marching Band PE (grades 10-12), and Athletic PE (grades 10-12).

School Loop Daily Emails

School Loop daily emails will continue to be an option. Parents who are registered for School Loop will need to opt-in to choose to receive daily emails. The previous default was that parents who register for School Loop received a daily email and that they have to opt-out to avoid receiving them. Whether or not they choose to receive daily School Loop emails, parents will continue to have full access to School Loop via the Internet and the School Loop app.

Flexible School Start/End Times

Some schools are offering flexible start/end times this year. Many of these schools will continue to do so in the 2019-2020 school year.
