arrowsCAHSEE Suspension & Retroactive Issuance of Diplomas
Senate Bill (SB) 172 (Liu), signed by Governor Brown on October 7, 2015, suspended the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE). The law also requires districts to grant a diploma of graduation to any student who completed grade twelve from 2004 to 2015 school years, and has met all applicable graduation requirements other than passing the CAHSEE high school exit examination. This law took effect on January 1, 2016; with this in mind, Santa Cruz City Schools is now permitted to issue diplomas to eligible students.

Superintendent's Message

Dear SCCS Community,

Thank you for a wonderful school year.  There is much to celebrate about student achievement as our graduates prepare to attend various colleges and universities this fall and pursue a variety of employment opportunities.

The SCCS team is busy preparing for the new school year. This summer, staff are participating conferences, workshops and training to refine their skills and build new knowledge to continually improve instruction, programs and services for students.   Our facilities team is hard at work deep cleaning our schools and implementing projects supported by the bonds generously passed by our community last November.

The month of July is quiet at school sites.  If you need support, please do not hesitate to contact our central office team.  School offices will re-open in early August.   We look forward to welcoming students back on August 23rd.

Best regards,
