Why do only 38 percent of San Diego Unified students graduate with the classes needed to apply to the California State University and University of California systems? We delved into the issue last fall, talking to counselors and teachers at Lincoln High and other schools about the requirements.

Now an outside nonprofit called the Education Trust West plans to look at San Diego Unified to answer that same question.

The school board will discuss the group’s planned audit in detail on Tuesday morning.


Correction: The original version of this post included results from an Education Trust West audit being presented to the school board Feb. 9. We said the results were from San Diego Unified. They weren’t. They were from another California school district and were included with some data about San Diego Unified to show the school board what an audit would look like. The group hasn’t yet audited San Diego Unified; its report is due in June. We apologize for the mistake.
