Kennedy High School's Federal
CLASS OF 2014
GET READY FOR EARLY START
On June 11, 2010, the California State University Chancellor's Office issued a system-wide mandate formally establishing the Early Start Program (ESP). http://www.csusuccess.org/juniors
Starting in Summer 2012, all students with remedial needs in mathematics who have been admitted for the fall semester will be required to attend a remedial mathematics activity at a CSU campus during the summer before fall classes begin..
Juniors, who earn a status of Conditionally Ready in mathematics on their Early Assessment test given in May, may satisfy the CSU's Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) requirement by taking a senior year math class with an Algebra 2 prerequisite and earning a grade of C or better. (Note: A "C-" does NOT count.)
Students who fail to comply will not be permitted to enroll in fall semester classes.
The same requirement will take effect for English in the summer of 2014! (That's the class of 2014.)

About the EAP Results: Math EAP statuses are determined by combining student performance on selected problems on the STAR math test along with the additional 15 CSU math problems. English EAP statuses are determined by combining student performance on selected problems on the STAR English test along with the additional 15 CSU English questions and the 45-minute essay.
Class of 2014 EAP Results Will Become Available August 2013 (Online and on the 2013 STAR test report)
NEW EAP STATUS: ‘EAP English Conditional’ Applicable to current high school juniors (those that will be high school seniors Fall 2014)
The EAP has a new status for English: Conditional. Similar to the Math Conditional status, the English Conditional Status demonstrates that the student has performed at a high level on the EAP test. However, the CSU feels that failure to take a rigorous English course in the senior year will diminish English skills necessary for success at the college level. The English Conditional status allows a student to be placed in credit bearing courses once enrolled at the CSU or participating community college if the student meets the condition of the exemption. They are exempt from taking the English Placement Test (EPT).
MEETING THE CONDITION
Students may meet the English Conditional status by taking one of several English courses in the senior year. In order to maintain the exemption, students must earn a grade of “C” or higher. Students who fail to meet the condition will be required to take the English Placement Test (EPT) upon admission to the CSU and follow appropriate steps required by participating community colleges.
· Expository Reading and Writing Course (ERWC)
· AP English
· IB English
· Weighted Honors English (deemed a weighted class on the ‘a-g’ list)
In order for the ERWC course to satisfy the condition, it must be officially adopted and offered as a year-long course. The course must have been approved by the certification process and appear on the official ‘a-g’ list on the UC Doorways portal as satisfying the ‘b’ requirement. In addition, instructors must also be certified through the ERWC training process.
Students who have not passed the EPT, or demonstrated proficiency through SAT or ACT scores, IB, or EAP will be required to participate in the University’s Early Start Program prior to enrolling at their destination campus. Students, who are English Conditional, will be exempt from participation in Early Start.
NOT MEETING THE ENGLISH CONDITION
· Students who are deemed English Conditional, enroll in one of the approved English courses, but do not earn a grade of “C” or higher will not meet the conditional status and will not be exempt from the EPT. These students will be required to take the English Placement Test (EPT) upon admission to the CSU and follow appropriate steps required by participating community colleges.
· Students who are English Conditional and do not enroll in any of the approved English courses will be required to take the EPT and forfeit their exemption status
