Martin Luther King (Jr.) High School


Welcome to the King High School Counseling Page!

Welcome to King High’s Counseling page.  


If you have any counseling-related questions, please contact Sharlese Jones at Questions may include but are not limited to topics, such as: graduation requirements, options after graduation, mental health and agencies in Yolo County that support DJUSD families and students with services and resources.



Graduation Requirements

To graduate from King High, a student needs 210 credits. The following are credit requirements (in parentheses) by subject area:

  • English (35)
  • Science (20)
  • Math (10)
  • Algebra (10)
  • Government (5)
  • U.S. History (10)
  • Social Studies (10)
  • Career Ed (5)
  • Economics (5)
  • Fine Art (5)
  • Practical Art (5)
  • P.E. (20)
  • School Service (1)
  • and Electives (69)


Students from King receive a high school diploma. Because King is not an A-G school, King graduates may not go straight to a 4 year university but may go to a Community College and then transfer to a 4-year institution.



Reduced Graduation Requirements


If a student qualifies for reduced graduation requirements under Education Code AB1806/AB167/216, then only the state minimum state requirements need to be met. This legislation exempts a homeless or foster youth student who transfers schools after the completion of the student’s 2nd year of high school from coursework/requirements that are in addition to the statewide requirements (of 130 credits), unless the student is reasonably able to complete the King requirements by the end of the student’s 4th year of high school.


For more information about King, including credit earning and graduation requirements, please refer to the Student Handbook.



Community College and Financial Aid - FAFSA


Community College

King graduates may apply to the CA Community College system. Los Rios Community College district (includes Sacramento City College) and Woodland Community College are the closest geographically to Davis.


More information about Los Rios Community College application process.


More information about Woodland Community College application process.



Financial Aid

To apply for federal student aid, such as federal grants, work-study, and loans, you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and easier than ever, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school.

In addition, many states and colleges use your FAFSA information to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid. FAFSA assists with determining a student’s financial need, based on college’s cost and Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

Information that is needed for completing the FAFSA:


County Student and Family Resources



Empower Yolo’s Family Resource Centers offer information about resources and services in the area, including assistance with referrals and applications. This is a great “first stop” to get information about local agencies and resources.
