San Diego Unified may take baby steps toward making its graduation requirements match the classes needed to get into the University of California system. Proponents argue that the required series of classes, known as the A-G sequence, are not equally available to all students in the school district and that raising the bar will better prepare students for both college and the workplace.

The school district will consider a resolution to create a steering committee that would make recommendations on graduation requirements by the end of this calendar year. The board had earlier discussed a resolution that would make A-G the minimum requirements for graduation, but only as a first reading.
