High School Exit Interview
The Senior Exit Interview is a graduation requirement established by the Murrieta Valley Unified School District in 2008 beginning with the graduating Class of 2013. This recommendation came from the 21st Century Collaborative Ad Hoc Committee. This district committee reviewed research and recommendations addressing 21st century college and work force requirements, and as a result Board Policy 6146.1(a) regarding district graduation requirements was revised.
Students obtaining a diploma of graduation from a Murrieta Valley Unified School District high school shall successfully complete a presentation on personal career/life goals.
