Any special education student who meets all graduation requirements except for passage of the California High School Exit Examination earns a diploma and may participate in graduation ceremonies. If a special education student is on a non-diploma track, the student may attend school until age 22 and will earn a Certificate of Completion. The student may participate in graduation events by arrangement with the school site.
For students who are 18-22 and on a Certificate of Completion track, the district operates a Community Based Instruction program, Adult Transition and Education Program (ATEP). This program is a blend of individual IEP goals, community outings and instruction, and job placement and coaching.
