SACRAMENTO, Calif. — State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond announced today that the California Department of Education and the California State Board of Education issued new guidance on graduation requirements and grading for seniors.

“We are thinking of our seniors and the impact that the current COVID-19 public health emergency and subsequent physical closure of schools has had on them, and we hope that this guidance will help relieve some stress and anxiety,” said Thurmond. “We are doing everything we can to support all our schools and students, and will continue to address seniors’ needs going forward.”
