Local, state and national high school graduation rates are rising, but not everyone earns a diploma in the traditional way.
There is another option: through a public library.
For those who did not earn a high school diploma, the Solano County Library, in association with the California State Library, offers a career online high school program, a chance to earn a diploma and career certificates.
If interested in knowing more about this pilot program, the first step is to visit www.solanolibrary.com/cohs.
Once there, you will be asked to take a “self-assessment,” which can be completed in several minutes. It will ask you to select your library and for some personal information (name, address, telephone number).
