Graduation Requirements


Cal Grant GPA opt-out information 

In October 2020, the SMHS counseling team will send the GPAs for all SMHS seniors to the California Student Aid Commission. This GPA verification is required to determine eligibility for financial aid (Cal Grant) from the State of California for students who will attend a college or university in California.

Parents/Guardians have the option to opt-out from this process. If you would NOT like your student's GPA sent to the California Student Aid Commission this fall, please contact our counseling secretary, Gwen Smith 760-290-2262 or by email at gwendolyn.smith@smusd.org.
