The Board of Education believes that a sound educational program must include the study of subjects that prepare students for admission to higher education and/or a fulfilling career. To the extent possible, district students shall be provided an opportunity to complete a sequence of mathematics courses recommended for admission into the University of California and California State University systems. To that end, PYLUSD has developed assessments that provide multiple data points to ensure that entering 9th-grade students are appropriately placed in mathematics courses at the high school level.
Please note, high school classes may not be skipped. Algebra I is a high school graduation requirement per the state of California. This course must appear on a middle school or high school transcript to fulfill the requirement.
