Here is some important End of Year information for Seniors as we approach graduation. Please read each section carefully.If you have any questions, please reach out to us.
Senior Exit Survey
All Seniors need to complete the Senior Exit Survey. This survey takes only a few minutes, and helps us to know what your post-secondary plans are. The deadline to complete this survey is Friday, May 14th.
RJUHSD has partnered with Parchment for all electronic transcript services for current students and alumni. Parchment is a digital credential service that is widely used by high schools, colleges, and universities across the country. Transcripts ordered through Parchment are electronically delivered to the address or school of your choice in the format they prefer. Once registered you will have 24/7 access and the ability to track orders from purchase to delivery. To get started click the link below to create your Parchment account. Please register your account with a personal email address and NOT an @student.rjuhsd.us email.
NOTE: While you can set up your account now, and request Final Transcript now, you MUST select "HOLD FOR GRADES" when asked "when do you want this sent," in order for your final 4th quarter grades to be included.
