New graduation requirements starting with Class of '19

Superintendent John Perales explains the new A-G graduation requirements approved by the Board of Trustees. These new rules will go into effect next year with the class of 2019:

What are the A-G requirements? 
To be considered for admission to a University of California campus, such as U.C. Berkeley or UCLA, as well as private colleges and universities, students must complete 15 yearlong high school courses with a grade of C or better — at least 11 of them prior to their senior year.

Keep in mind that taking approved high school (“A-G”) courses isn't the only way to satisfy these requirements. Students may also meet them by completing college courses or Advanced Placement Courses (AP Classes) and complete the AP exams for each particular course with a passing score.

For California State University schools, such as San Jose State University, the "A-G" courses are also a requirement.

Doing well in "A-G" courses will also help our students in community colleges, professional schools and wherever after-high-school life will take them.

San Benito High School will be adopting the A-G requirements as our high graduation requirements. I truly believe in giving ALL of our students options their senior year. For example, a student may choose to apply to a 4-year school, attend a community college, enter a trade school or serve our country in the Armed Forces. Whichever path a student may choose, the KEY is that they have options their senior year and are well prepared academically. I believe these graduation requirements will increase the learning rigor of all students and help our students reach their dreams! Please know that we are not jumping into this undertaking blindly. We know we must provide our students with additional support to help them meet these new requirements. I always use the lens of my own children and these are my expectations for them - these must be the expectations for all of our children!

Students may congregate in 1 of 4 campus areas

Principal Todd Dearden announced that as of Monday, Jan. 26, students may congregate in one of four areas during break and lunch:

- The main campus quad (100's through 200's)

- The 300's quad (349-396)

- The Industrial Arts plaza (300-342)

- The 400 quad (450-482)

Lines will be painted on the pavement to help students know where it is appropriate for them to congregate. Students may leave one of the designated areas for the purpose of traveling to another. For the complete announcement from Principal Dearden, click here for English. Anuncio en Espanol.

Benefit Ball aids former student

San Benito High School ASB students on Jan. 8 presented a check for just over $14,000 to Dave Dominguez, the father of 2010 Baler alumna Kaylin Dominguez, this year's beneficiary. Mr. Dominguez thanked the students for their hard work over the last four months and expressed his appreciation and gratitude to the staff and student body for helping his daughter through her medical issues. He said Kaylin is making slow but steady progress at home. Dave and his wife, Kelly, are Baler alumni and Kelly's family has five generations of Baler grads. "This town has really taken care of us," he said. The photo below features (L to R) ASB Vice President Nonnie Coelho, ASB President Kali Smiley, David Dominguez, and commissioners of community affairs Bishop Warner, Katie Guardino, Luz Elizarraraz and Marisa Johnson.

Supplemental educational services available

Many San Benito High School students are eligible to receive supplemental educational services (SES) in the areas of English/Langage Arts and Mathematics. These services are classes or tutoring which occur outside the regular school day with private educational providers approved by the State Board of Education because the school is in program improvement status.  

Parents interested in SES for their student may obtain an application by clicking here and the list of approved providers by clicking here or calling 637-5831 ext. 162 (or extension 176 for a Spanish speaker) to have the materials mailed to them. Applications are due by Feb. 6 and students will be accepted based on greatest need.
