The Shasta Union High School District requires students to meet a computer proficiency for graduation. Students may take a computer class or take the computer proficiency exam. The Student/Parent Handbook states, "Students must take two semesters of an approved Business or Technology course or pass the district’s Computer Proficiency test as a requirement for graduation. Passing the computer proficiency test does not waive the 10-unit Practical Arts requirement." You must test in five different areas including:
  • Computer Concepts
  • MS Word 2016
  • MS Excel 2016
  • MS Access 2016
  • MS Powerpoint 2016
Students must pass the exam with a 70% or better and they may take the exam at Enterprise, Foothill or Shasta High School. Please note the following test dates:
