Supt. Ramon C. Cortines Provides Statement on Graduation Requirements for Students in the Class of 2015

July 9, 2015
As superintendent, I value our high school principals and counselors. No one is to blame for discrepancies in graduation requirements. Fortunately, the My Integrated Student Information System, the new student record-keeping software program, worked and flagged this issue.

Since then, staff — especially administrators and counselors — have been working during their vacation to make necessary corrections. Having served as a high school principal, nothing is more rewarding than stating the words, ‘By the authority vested in me, I pronounce you graduates.’

We continue to focus on this effort, and have absolute confidence in our school administrators, counselors, graduates and the entire L.A. Unified family.
