The purpose of the A-G Diploma Project is to provide comprehensive, evidence-based child welfare and attendance services and supports in order to increase A-G course passage and graduation rates, promote college and career readiness, and achieve the goal of zero dropouts in the Los Angeles Unified School District. 
 
Program Description
