To ensure that all LAUSD students are enrolled, attending, engaged, and on-track to graduate.
    The purpose of the A-G Diploma Project is to provide comprehensive, evidence-based child welfare and attendance services and supports in order to increase A-G course passage and graduation rates, promote college and career readiness, and achieve the goal of zero dropouts in the Los Angeles Unified School District. 
    Program Description
    The A-G Diploma Program will reengage students who are not on track to meeting the A-G requirements for graduation by working with all stakeholders to implement interventions with the vision of graduation and college and career readiness for all students. The A-G Diploma Program provides; early identification, intensive case management, enrollment in appropriate educational programs and zone of support, parent engagement, and support for transitions.
    Program Objectives
    Program services are strategically designed to:
    • Increase the percentage of targeted students attending at 96% or higher rate
    • Decrease the percentage of targeted students who are chronically absent (attending at/below 91% rate)
    • Increase the % of parents, staff, and students who are aware of A-G requirements as reflected in the school experience survey
    • Reduce credit deficiency/the percentage of students demoted or failing to promote between grade levels for the class of 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020
    • Increase the percentage of targeted students who are on-track to on-time A-G diploma attainment/graduation
    • Identify students who qualify for exemptions from District graduation requirements as appropriate
    • Recover students who have dropped out by providing multiple pathways and assistance to support each student toward diploma/Hi-SET attainment students.
