Are College Park Graduation Requirements Too Easy?

When Mount Diablo Unified's governing board axed, it also reduced the number of credits high school students needed to graduate. MDUSD has the lowest credit requirement in the area. That may change. 

School officials are that aim to help lagging students catch up on credits. If it works, the school board will consider requiring more credits to graduate.
