In order to improve options for SJUSD students, a specific set of online courses have been pre-approved for high school credit for students who:
- Need to recover a failed course,
- Need to improve a grade, or
- Need to take an additional course outside of the school day.
Students who choose to take an online class will complete all of the coursework on their own, following the guidelines of the provider offering the course. Students must work with their counselors if interested. Exams must be proctored by approved school district staff. Each of the site's high school counseling offices have lists of approved providers and courses. The 'Online SJUSD Application
' must be submitted and approved prior to taking the course for it to be recognized by the SJUSD high school.
