College Readiness as a Graduation Requirement: An Assessment of San Diego’s Challenges
Julian R. Betts, Andrew C. Zau, and Karen Volz Bachofer

April 2013

Four large California school districts—Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Oakland—recently adopted ambitious new graduation standards designed to increase college readiness. Evidence from San Diego indicates a need for major interventions to help students succeed under the new policies. In conjunction with this report, the authors developed the a–g On Track Model, which can help districts identify middle-school students who will have difficulty completing the new requirements.

This research was supported with funding from the Donald Bren Foundation.
