2020-2021 Parent Welcome Letter 


Dear Poly High School Family 


The Gold Academy small learning community (SLC) team welcomes you to a fantastic school year full of Poly Pride!

 I am the 11th grade Gold Academy Counselor Mrs. Reyes for students with last names (M-Z). At our SLC center we have a Coordinator, a Dean of Students, and an Assistant Principal. Collectively, our staff works diligently with students and parents to empower students and foster a college and career ready program.  The goal of the Center is to provide a personalized counseling and guidance experience to each student on campus to foster socio-emotional support and promote college and career readiness with the ultimate goal of maximizing student potential. Starting the school year in Distance learning has been a challenge, with your support in guiding your student to graduation this year and keeping open line of communication we will get through this together.  

Your child will need to pass all courses each year and earn a specific amount of credits to promote to the next grade level in high school: For a student to Promote to 10thgrade, they need to earn 50 credits by the end of 9thgrade, for a student to Promote to the 11thgrade the student will need to earn 105 credits by the end of 10thgrade, to be Classified as a 12th grader. The student must have 160 credits by the end of their 11th grade.  Your child will need 210 credits in specific courses to graduate along with meeting non-course requirements which include identifying a career pathway and completing a Service Learning Project.  Each student is given an (IGP) Individual graduation plan from 9th grade to 12th grade and this plan is reviewed with the student twice a year to make sure they understand where they are in graduating.  

The following are the required courses all students need to complete to be able to graduate from high school: 

History: 3 Years 

English:  4 years 

Mathematics:  3+ Years 

Science:  2+ Years 

Language other than English:  2 Years 

Visual Performing Arts: 1 Year 

College Elective Prep: 1 year 

Physical Education: 2 years 

Health: 1 Quarter 

Service Learning Project: Completed by the end of senior year. 

CTE Completion 

These are the bare minimum requirements to graduate from an LAUSD High School. Any additional courses your student takes in any area will give them an advantage to be accepted to a 4 year University. 

 We will be reviewing your child’s IGP (high school/college) with your student in the fall and we will be meeting with them in the spring to ensure your student is meeting the requirements needed to graduate and be college/career ready. If you would like an appointment to review your student’s graduation plan, Email me at or 818-394-3606.
