Good morning,


Below is the link to begin creating your 4 year plan. Keep in mind this is a DRAFT and is not permanent. We are brainstorming. You must make a copy in order to edit it.

Welcome Back. Huskies

Welcome Back, Huskies! We are so excited to be your counselors this school year and to meet each of you. If you have a concern, please don't hesitate to stop by the Counseling Office or to send us a note. Don't remember your counselor? See below.

Students can contact their counselors through email or by coming into the counseling office before school, during lunch, or after school. If your counselor is not available when they come in, students can fill out a request to see the counselor (form to the left after walking through the door) and the counselor will send for the student.


Note for parentsIf you wish to speak with your student's counselor, please be sure to make an appointment. We often can not accommodate drop-ins. 


We Believe...

  • In meeting the needs of the whole child.
  • All students should have equal access and opportunity.
  • In providing critical support by connecting students to resources within and outside of the school system.
  • All students contribute to the diversity of the school community and have the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
  • All students can achieve.
  • In nurturing resilience.
  • In advocating for our students’ unique developmental needs.
  • Every student should feel a sense of belonging and connectedness to their school.
  • In collaborating and partnering with students, parents, teachers, administrators and the community.

Non-DJUSD Courses

DJUSD Board policy allows up to ten credits for courses from other accredited institutions on the DJUSD transcript with notation of where the course was taken. This could be a one semester college course, for example, or two semesters of high school level courses. A notation of P will be made if the course has been preapproved as college prep by UC/CSU for "a-g" credit. The policy went into effect June 15, 2012, without regard for any previous non-DJUSD courses taken. All non-DJUSD courses must be completed by the end of fall semester of the senior year.


UC/CSU Approved A-G Courses:

Go to www.ucop.edu/a-gGuide/ag/online_course.html.

Select names of approved online providers you are interested in.

Then go to: https://doorways.ucop.edu/list.

Enter the name of the online school and then review the list of "a-g" approved courses.

Note: UC/CSU will not accept any online course in the area of visual and performing arts (VPA) or laboratory science, unless science courses require an on-site wet lab component.

Final Exam Proctor: DJUSD teachers do not proctor final exams for online courses.
