Counseling

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. 

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 parents:

If you wish to speak with your student's counselor, please be sure to make an appointment. We often cannot accommodate drop-ins.

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:

Select names of approved online providers you are interested in here.

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.
